Holistic School Transformation
What are Affordable Private Schools (APS)?
In India, on an average 56 to 69 percent of the students enrolled in Affordable Private Schools perform below their grade-level (across multiple grades and subjects).
There is no organised system within which such a large number of schools operate.
These schools are growing in number and therefore, poor quality poses a problem for the present and the future alike
Did you know?
There are an estimated 300,000 – 400,000 low-cost private schools in India.

Why is it happening?
Limited administrative capacity
Absence of school vision
Low teaching skills and motivation
Lack of resources
Limited innovation at school
That all affordable private schools develop a culture of professionalism and organisational collaboration to provide quality education.
We provide and help implement sustainable solutions which span across a spectrum of crucial activities at school to effectively improve teacher and student outcomes. We achieve this by introducing well documented systems and processes that can be replicated across schools and partnering with multiple organisations specialised in these specific domains.
To bring about school transformation through administrative systems, capacity building and collaborations.
How does it happen?
Easily implementable and lasting systems that foster learning for both children and teachers
For school leaders and teachers
Professional Learning Communities
Partner with local NGOs and align them to a common vision
One Star Public School
The school was established by tribal youth passionate about bringing education to their village. They tried attaining teaching jobs but corruption led them to start their own initiative. They pooled resources and with community support began a small school in ramshackle village huts with the aim to ensure that underprivileged children are not deprived of even the chance to learn reading and writing.
Our objective is to create a lasting system that will enhance student and teacher learnings, school infrastructure, and stakeholder involvement to provide effective education.
This is the most under resourced region of the tehsil with 90% tribal population, most of whom are marginal farmers in this draught stricken land. The presence of teachers and doctors is negligible leading to poor standards of education, health and nutrition.
What has happened so far?
Basic infrastructure like electricity supply, school bus and science playground established
Training and Volunteers
A regular stream of volunteers and teacher trainers mobilised
Localised sustainable agriculture curriculum designed to learn problem solving
