Problem

Imagine being asked to read long paragraphs and tested on them without ever getting the chance to learn the alphabet; or having to solve mathematical equations, without knowing numbers. That is the struggle of 50 million children in India who are in primary grades and have yet to attain basic mastery of literacy and numeracy (Source: National Education Policy, India – 2020).

Solution

ThinkZone utilizes offline-enabled mobile application solutions for training and equipping youth to become educators. Through ThinkZone's data-driven technology and research-based methodology on learning, youth support children in their communities to develop age-based competencies. We also use voice & SMS-based low-cost technology to provide free, interactive learning resources for families. We work with communities to support at-home learning for children aged 3-10 years.
