The ‘Sampark Smart Shala’ Solution
Sampark Smart Shala is a learning outcome focused, frugal innovation that uses audio technology, a voice mascot called ‘Sampark Didi’, toys, folklore, board games, teacher training modules, and an app combined with rigorous monitoring in collaboration with State Governments.
Today, we work with 7 million children across 76,000 schools at the cost of just $1 per child/annum. Our goal is to transform learning outcomes for 20 million children studying in 200,000 rural government schools by 2025.
