When we think of educating underprivileged children, we often think of a top-down approach with strict accountability measures for teachers and the school. We pour our money into rigorous teacher training and exorbitant resources. Perhaps a cheaper and more efficient solution to India’s education inequality lies in the student not the school. We believe that motivated students with sufficient resources can direct their learning, with or without the support from teachers or the school.
We founded SelfEd to provide sustainable resources that enable students to drive their own learning.

There are plenty of ways to get involved with SelfEd Initiative to help us change education globally.
The STEM workshop is a pilot program in applied mathematics and engineering designed by the Future Engineers Camp in California. The mission of this program is to provide foundational knowledge in STEM while fostering curiosity and creativity. Volunteers spend a few hours at a low-income school help conduct hands-on activities to teach STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics).
SelfEd is always looking for volunteers for activities such fundraising and more. We are involved in many projects and we are looking for your help!
One of the many things that are required to facilitate self motivated learning are school supplies. The proper supplies for students is pivotal in their learning environment. Click here to inquire about donations of school supplies.
