About the Organization:
Our NGO is a not-for-profit organization that is working towards making deep, large scale and institutionalized impact on the quality and equity of education in India, along with related development areas. We believe that any large-scale educational change requires significant and sustained effort over decades and can be achieved through working at multiple levels with a multi-pronged approach. Today, we work in 7 states and 1 Union Territory with a potential to reach over 3, 50,000 schools. Key aspects of our work include:
Partnering with Government: We work in collaboration with state governments and engage with teachers, teacher educators, head teachers at the block and cluster level and with education officials, senior government functionaries and policy makers at the district, state and national levels.
State and District Institutes: We have State Institutes in the capitals of select Indian States and several District Institutes within these states, each having dedicated teams. The work of the State and District Institute is institutional in nature, recognizing that long term and consistent engagement is necessary for educational change.
Our Institutes work at the grass-root level, closely engaging with the government education system. The range of work we do spans capacity building of teachers, head teachers and other functionaries at the district level and state level. It also involves work on curriculum, assessment, educational leadership and management, policy issues and advocacy at the state level.
The Foundation today, has institutes that are located at Karnataka (Bengaluru, Yadgir, Mandya and Gulbarga), Rajasthan (Jaipur, Sirohi, Tonk, Barmer and Rajsamand), Uttarakhand (Dehradun, Uttarkashi, Udham Singh Nagar and Almora), Bihar (Patna), Chhattisgarh (Raipur and Dhamtari), Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal) and Puducherry.
At six of our District Institutes, we have the Foundation schools that have been established for the specific purpose of demonstration. These schools provide quality and free education to the local community, at costs and constraints similar to that of rural government schools.
Our Client University has a clear social purpose – to make significant contributions towards a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. The University aspires to do this through the development of talent and the creation of knowledge which can facilitate systemic change in education and allied development areas. This is an explicit commitment to the idea that knowledge and learning have human and social consequences and that their pursuit cannot be separated from these consequences.
Scale and Reach: Over the next few years, the Foundation plans to have about 50 District Institutes, 10 schools and over 4000 employees. We have footprints in 45 districts, have 6 Demonstration Schools and over 1200 employees.
