Dominic D’Souza used to be a teacher of Social Work. He decided to give that up and set up Laya, to work with tribal communities in Andhra Pradesh. Dominic has a long-standing relationship with young people as a teacher and a mentor. His leadership in organisations like IGSSS, Laya, National Youth Foundation and Asia South-Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education has given him an in-depth understanding of governance processes. He is sharp, funny, blunt, and compassionate and can talk with passion about a range of topics from mysticism to climate change!
Associate Director, Laya
