On a mission To impact the learning outcomes of300M school children through capacitating10M teachers globally by 2025.
Thousands of teachers are using ChalkLit everyday!
650000+ teachers impacted
There are close to 10 Million teachers in India teaching over 260 Million children in 1 Million schools. Almost 90% of teachers are not trained regularly; they remain unaware of innovative pedagogies in both scholastic and co-scholastic areas and find it difficult to integrate increasingly critical concepts, such as Life Skills, Sustainable Development Goals, Social & Emotional Learning, Gender Sensitivity, and Digital Citizenship, with classroom teaching. Educating for sustainability is being recognized as a key priority and integral to quality education globally but there is little shift in classroom practices. As a result, more than 50% of students in Grade 5 today cannot read a Grade 2 text or solve a simple subtraction problem and students' diverse learning needs remain unmet.
Million Sparks Foundation uses ChalkLit, a mobile application platform, to provide comprehensive capacity building programs for teachers, school leadership and administration at scale through partnerships with state education departments and school bodies. The platform also allows other content and training organizations to host their content and run blended or completely online programs.
