Agastya Applauded in Huffington Post

Read Devanik Saha's article 'Fostering Innovation and Creativity in Rural India: Agastya Foundation'.

How many of us have represented our country as international delegates in some prestigious science fair? I would think that hardly 1% of those reading this article might have received this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But Jyothsna and Bhargavi, two 13-year-old girls from Settipalli, Andhra Pradesh, a quiet and remote rural village in India, attended the International Science Fair in Pittsburgh as "special international delegates" this year. More. . .

    To Whom it may Concern,

    I learned about Agastya through a video on an education home page given by the founder. I live in Rwanda and currently support a grassroots organization called SekaRwanda whose goal is to inform teachers of quality teaching practices and get students engaged in material. I am a volunteer from the United States. After learning and studying your mobile science labs, I am interested in learning whether this concept would be as successful here in East Africa. Our focus, however, would be on teaching English. Can you direct me to the best person to advise me the success of this particular model in Rwanda? Any advice and insight would be greatly appreciated as well.

    Thank you,
    Alexandra
