  • Beschreibung


    This is a not-for-profit organization based in Delhi. We work with the mission to transform the teaching and learning processes within India’s government schools, through a 'Whole School Transformation' program across diverse contexts and landscapes to realise its vision i.e “To empower our children to build a better tomorrow.”

    We run ‘Simple Schools’ where we work to transform government schools into centres of excellence, as we leverage all stakeholders to work together to improve student learning and growth. The Simple School model works at the intersection of Teachers, Students, Community and School Systems, thereby effectively impacting and involving all stakeholders to take ownership and create a sustainable space that supports and nurtures excellent education.

    Currently, we run five such 'Simple Schools’ located in urban Delhi and rural Uttarakhand, where we directly reach out to 1000 Students and 35 Teachers across these diverse school communities. In the next 5 years, through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative of various state governments, we aim to build a network of 'Simple Schools' across multiple states in India, that serve as proof points and resource hubs of best practices in learning and teaching within the government schooling system.

    At Gular i.e Paathshala Project has placed 3 paid staff One of them is a Program Leader responsible for running the rural program, other is a Teaching Assistant supporting Program Leader in Literacy skills execution in Hindi and English. Another is Community Assistant working across 13 communities of nearby villages.
