Mandar Thete

I was born and raised in Pune, India.
In my day job, I work as an engineer. Having seen the impact of education in my own life and the lives of others over the years, I deeply believe in education as a cause and reason for the everyday betterment of individuals.


I feel honored to work with Giraffe Laugh in contributing to this cause and the incredible work being done in early childhood education.
Having a professional background in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) helps me create awareness about the importance of STEM education whenever I get a chance.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time in nature, especially hiking or working on DIY projects, reading books etc.
Please check out the work being done by Giraffe Laugh and help us in advancing this work towards early childhood education!
