How do we create change?

We aim to eliminate intergenerational poverty by supporting disadvantaged children in India with all the resources they need in order to graduate High School. Our modus operandi is as follows: 

  • Leverage the smartphone wave in India to reach students directly (via high quality educational content provided through our edX app and YouTube channel)
  • Develop methods to track student progress, and listen to students via various pilot programs
  • Embrace a community driven, localized approach
  • Engage student toppers (high scorers on nationwide standardized tests) as tutors to improve student motivation and develop their confidence
  • Develop different paid and volunteer pools of skilled and relatable tutors
  • Work with excellent field partners on the ground in Bihar
  • Create technology platforms and partnerships for maximum scalability

Pilot Program - "Toppers as Tutors"

  • June 2019: We launched our pilot program through a WhatsApp group of girl students in the West Champaran District of Bihar
  • Focus of the year is to reach 20,000 students¬†preparing to write the High School graduation (Intermediate) examinations in 2020
  • Exam toppers acting as tutors ensures the relevance of content to the local context, a deeper level of connection, and greater motivation to continue education
  • Our team of Topper Tutors recorded 30+ hours of video content in three months following the pilot launch
