Story and Vision

A facebook post by Aarti Madhusudan asking for just 50 volunteers to speak in English with a child for an hour every week ( over the phone )  has snowballed into 1000+ enthusiastic volunteers signing up in just less than 2 weeks of initiating this program ( June 26th, 2020). This enthusiasm is spreading and we have volunteers that are signing up as you read :)  

So this overwhelming response from the volunteers has resulted in expanding the horizons of this opportunity to an unfathomable level.

We are now assisting : 

  • Students of grade 6th - grade 12th @ govt schools

  • Teachers in the government schools 

  • Kids of the domestic help 

  • NGOs across India that are working with kids

The intention of this initiative was to help the first generation English speakers to improve their fluency, but our  volunteers have been going that extra mile to make the entire experience fun and engaging for their students by creative teaching techniques.

So what's next ? The vision is to expand this support to 500+ organizations by the end of 2021. In order to do this, we are building an army of superheroes ( aka volunteers ). Interested to join this movement that is a 100% volunteer driven ? Please check below for the available opportunities.
