“…this is a very innovative intervention that is bringing excitement back into the classroom and significantly improving learning outcomes…”
– Dr. Raman Singh, Chief Minister, Chhattisgarh
Most children studying in India’s 740,000 government primary schools cannot do simple Math or construct a sentence in English
Investments in education have doubled in recent decades, but improving learning outcomes has not been a focus area so far
Most teachers do not have adequate qualifications and training, which affects the ability to explain or teach basic concepts.
The classroom transaction between teachers and students is limited to textbook teaching, with little/no alternative teaching methods used.
Our 100-strong team travels over 15,000 kms to some of the remotest corners of the country, bringing with them much-needed help, support and guidance for rural primary school teachers. Read some of our most inspiring stories here.
