Peepul Transforming student learning in government schools in India through high-engagement teaching

Millions of students in India are grappling with significant learning gaps. School leaders and teachers are often overburdened with non-teaching duties and lack the skills and incentives to provide an engaging learning environment. As a result, India is facing a learning crisis despite having the largest schooling system (1.1 million schools) in the world.

Peepul creates high-engagement classrooms to enhance the learning outcomes of students in government schools. The tailored, engagement focused teaching model combines need-specific teacher trainings, rigorous academic mentoring, and sustainable administrative policies and processes. 

Peepul builds strong relationships with the government education systems to co-design and co-implement tailored learning programs embedded in robust mechanisms to measure impact at each step. This ensures the sustainability and scalability of their interventions.
