The focus is not just on age-and-grade-appropriate learning in curricular subjects such as language and mathematics; it is also on leveraging 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaborative learning and the use of technology to promote learning – skills that ensure effective participation in a vibrant democracy.
The focus of Society’s educational strategies is also to democratise the functioning of educational institutions, enabling communities to take ownership of these institutions, and hold them accountable. All stakeholders, management, Faculty, Students, parents – are encouraged to work together towards a common goal. The approach is to deepen conversations with NGOs, convene like-minded parties around specific causes and create a strategy for convergence that will help achieve scale at national level.

The Society’s educational interventions are implemented through thematic initiatives that seek to address specific gaps in the education sector in a comprehensive manner.
