Our network of three high-achieving primary schools in Delhi transforms the lives of  over 1200 children from low-income communities


As practitioners who believe in demonstrated impact, we have pioneered the turnaround of three ailing schools into visual exemplars, in partnership with the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC).


These ‘proof-of-concept’ schools that are run within the government system act as our innovation labs. We track and analyze school-level data for insightful evidence on interventions that work. We contextualize international best-practices to the Indian government school context. And once we identify what works, we also codify and disseminate it across the programmes we run.


The profile of our students and the talent pools of teachers are the same as those of a typical government school – yet, we deliver exceptional results.
