While access to quality education is a fundamental right for all children, there is a great disparity in the quality of educational provision. between children from poor and rich families. While privileged students get top quality infrastructure, extensive resources and many well-qualified teachers, poorer students lack these vital components of quality education. This inequality of education contributes to inequality of life choices, opportunities, economic disparity & an endless poverty cycle.
The Museum School addresses the issues of poor infrastructure, limited resources and a lack of trained teachers by making use of a City’s Museums to provide quality education to children. Museums have the greatest pool of knowledge, explained through the best teaching aids in the world (their exhibits). They also have subject experts as researchers and volunteers. The Museum School brings all these resources together, to deliver high-quality education to economically deprived children.

Two video teams one each in India, and US are already in place. We need more in our team to first create a repository of 3D video lessons, and then implement them in phases in different geographies.
