Area of Focus

Partnerships

QUEST was born in 2004 out of a shared commitment to addressing the problems in the Indian education system. To achieve our mission, we work on the premise of shared responsibility and shared benefits.

QUEST provides the funding and know-how to build partnerships. In turn, these partnerships create, pilot and institutionalize technology tools that improve education in all settings.

Multiplying Our Resources

We began with three geographic regions – Mumbai, Hyderabad and Karnataka state.  Since then we have expanded to Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi and West Bengal  These areas demonstrate cost-effective technologies that are replicable and can be used long-term in poorer or more remote environments. All improve enrollment, retention and learning.

Building Links to Employment

To make sure youth have the skills, both life- and work-related, to compete for jobs, QUEST pilots and transfers other specialized educational technologies. These are geared toward vulnerable, out-of-school youth who have no formal vocational training programs and are unlikely to be reintegrated into the education system.

Promoting Policies for Long-Term Impact

To improve educational quality and relevance over the long-term, QUEST engages national and state governments in a policy dialogues. These efforts advocate a comprehensive educational technology policy and highlight issues critical to the success of these tools.

Aligning with India’s National Priorities QUEST is committed to aligning its efforts with the Government of India’s education and skill development policy and priorities.
