Kaivalya Education Foundation Strengthening the public education system to improve student literacy and numeracy

While India has largely solved the problem of low school enrollment, the country is facing a severe learning crisis due to a weak public education system and lack of dialogue between key stakeholders. The need to increase motivation levels and the operational efficiency of schools and government staff across the system has become paramount. Founded in 2008, the Kaivalya Education Foundation works to improve the quality of public education by strengthening leadership, improving processes and deploying technology at the school, district and state levels. Kaivalya acts as a systems integrator and partners with several stakeholders, including hyper-local NGOs and local governments, to deliver its programs.
