The Indian School educational context provides great opportunities for innovation as the children belong to diverse economic, social, geographical and cultural background. With 84.71% of the 1.5 million schools in India being rural schools, the highly limited quality of education and access to educational resources continue to remain a great challenge. National Achievement Survey (NAS) for Classes 3,8,5,10 in 2015 has decisively brought out that urban schools significantly outperform rural schools by a large margin in Science and Mathematics.

While access and attendance have significantly improved in India, it is time for serious focus on learning outcomes at schools. Anaadi VIBE is an innovative, wholesome and a cost-effective program that can inspire children to strengthen their basics and expand their working knowledge leading to an enhanced of education.
The VIBE program is designed to reach out to 300+ children through weekend schooling, satellite off-school programs and one-time learning programs like the Science Fair planned on Nov 27, 2017.
