  • Bangalore, Karnataka


Mantra4Change aims to tackle the lack of delivery of quality education in under-resourced schools. It considers an ineffective school environment, ine Read moreffective teaching-learning process and unsupportive community environment as the major cause of the above problem. It runs a school transformation and empowerment project, also known as STEP, under which it tries to create a learning atmosphere in under-resourced schools. The organisation focuses on developing the delivery power of teachers so that students can learn more from them. Parents and other community members are also involved in the process so that the learning atmosphere is present in homes as well as outside. It has also partnered with NGOs, universities and foundations to speed up the process.


Traditional approaches to teaching are becoming outdated and inefficient which leads to children in the public education space lagging behind in the quality of learning and experience.


Motivating leaders in education to build a multi-dimensional, sustainable, high quality learning experience for millions of children across India.
