At Kaivalya Education Foundation, we employ a bottom-up approach to solving the intertwined problems in the public education system at scale. Through ongoing ground support driving innovation on the field, we develop geography-specific, tech-based solutions to improve leadership and processes. By doing this, we re-shape education delivery for the future such that every child, regardless of background, can avail of the life chances she deserves.

It is this approach that is the bedrock of creating empowered generations across the country.

The Change Story of Jhunjhunu

Our impact is best looked at in Jhunjhunu, Kaivalya’s Innovation Hub

Since 2008, Jhunjhunu has achieved rank 2 in National Achievement Survey through interventions aimed at improving school processes, teaching practices, community leadership, and moving education out of classrooms. This has been supported by our innovations in the District processes such as Jan Andolan, No Bag Day, Collector ki Class, Baste ka Bojh Kam, Coach and Facilitator Trainings, etc,.

The success of our experiments to improve learning outcomes here is balanced on the three-pronged approach of strengthening school, community, and district leadership.

From 2019 onwards, Jhunjhunu is set to host a much wider variety of experiments on a well-built system in early childhood education, secondary education, global leadership, and socio-emotional and ethical learning. Through the transformation of K-12 education as a whole, we aim to develop Jhunjhunu as a model district for scaling holistic system development in the country.
