Education pink disk

Overview

The challenges arising out of our education system are multifaceted.

These range from high dropout rates, poor learning-levels, inequity in access to quality education, high prevalence of rote-learning, marks orientation, lack of accountability, and inadequate teacher preparation. These issues are systemic in nature and require deliberate, long-term, and sustained planning to build capacities and create  public awareness and engagement.

We build the capacities of important actors in the school education system to bring about the desired reform. We firmly believe that education is an enabler of social change. We envision a democracy where every citizen is empowered, not only in an individual capacity but also in the ethics of equity, the essentiality of diversity, the ethos of justice, and is thus driven by social sensitivity. Schools are the spaces that nurture these principles, capabilities, and values.

Our notion of good education ensures the holistic development of the child in multiple dimensions to fulfil and expand their potential, as they become active, contributing, and concerned citizens of the world. Such multiple dimensions of development include cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and ethical abilities. Learning-to-learn, critical thinking, problem-solving, conceptual understanding, etc., are some of the other important facets of an exceptional education system.

Our Approach

Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and public institutions have played a critical role in improving school education through sustained work and a wide range of creative interventions. Their work has had a direct impact on the ground and has also led to shifts in educational discourse and, to a lesser degree, in practice. There is a burgeoning need for CSOs to address the evolving challenges of school education in the country.

Our approach is to support such organizations engaged in school education to elevate the school learning experience. We do this through various means, such as –

  • Grants to enable these organizations to do focused on-the-ground work
  • Capacity building in educational, operational, and organisational areas
  • Mentoring support from domain experts and experienced practitioners
  • Facilitating an active community of educational organizations

Our work in the Higher Education arena has been around the relevant requirements of particular times. Over the years, we are involved in several initiatives that address different groups’ needs, ranging from access to quality education to work-readiness.
