Make Learning Fun! Useful! Accessible!

 

Through hands-on, interactive teaching-learning methods Agastya is helping children to break out of the limitations of their social constraints by transforming attitudes to learning. Agastya is a movement led by scientists, educators, CEOs and philanthropists to revitalize and transform education for disadvantaged children and rural teachers of India. Your support - like that of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam (former president of India) and others - will enable our collective dream of a New Normal – A creative India!
