Going to School pioneers in interactive learning for  children backed by design driven story telling to make learning more fun. They create design-driven stories to empower all children with the skills they need to participate in the world around them, solving poverty, unemployment, and inequality.

We work with children across India to find solutions. In the last three years, we printed and delivered 1.4 million skills stories that taught skills to more than 350,000 children across three of India's poorest states. We work directly in 1,300 secondary government schools, empowering 8,829 teachers to deliver skills and ensuring children continue to be inspired and identify their own opportunities, enterprises, and solutions

    Project description

    Be! Schools is a series of 45 design-driven stories that each teach children an entrepreneurial skill from identifying a problem, to taking initiative and making a plan. 10 stories are epic graphic novels of setting up a sustainable enterprise. Every year based on feedback from 150,000 kids, we create new stories about new heroes and new enterprises. We work directly in 1,300 secondary government schools in Bihar and Jharkhand, reaching 150,000 children in Grade 9 with skills stories and skills challenges for them to solve problems they see in their communities. Can you make a children's newspaper about entrepreneurs? Can you go house to house to ask families how much they spend on electricity to determine the viability of solar light?
