Our work spans nine Indian states impacting over 8 lakh students through large system-wide interventions in Haryana and the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Schools. Avanti’s Sankalp Program: Over the past 2 years, Avanti has been running a large system change project in Haryana. The project covers 219 intervention schools, where teachers are being provided with technology and content to teach Mathematics and Science in Grade 9-12. In addition, Avanti monitors progress through a team of program managers and through the assistance of government officials. This project is being evaluated by JPAL and is currently funded by the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, USAID, Morgridge Family Foundation and Douglas B. Marshall Family Foundation. Avanti’s Sandbox Project: This project consists of a carefully selected set of 40 schools spread across Delhi and Haryana which will be the base for our research and innovation initiatives. The objectives are to- i) inform product and program development, ii) rapidly test hypotheses and iterate program components, and iii) derive learnings to enable scaling of tested programs. These schools will be a pilot ground for both curricular and other programs focused on socio-emotional learning and study their effect on engagement and learning gains.
