Our story goes back to 2015, one of our founders was visiting his hometown in a remote part of India. One morning, as he was walking by his school, he decided to pay a short visit. While peeking in, he saw a middle-aged teacher trying to help her students imagine how rainfall typically occurs. She made the students close their eyes while she slowly narrated the whole process with intricate details. Her narration ended with the sheer joy of the students... as if they had felt the joy of the first drop of rainfall on a parched land.
The seemingly innocent method of teaching showed the power of visualization. It also revealed how ill equipped our schools are even in this digital era, to help students learn even simple lessons that are taken for granted in the developed world. This fascinating experience revealed to us a great unsolved problem - how can we enable our teachers with digital tools at affordable prices so that every teacher can effortlessly nurture the young minds of today for a better tomorrow.
And… that’s our story; that’s why we do what we do.
