The Answers to All Your Questions
How did IImagineIndia start?
A few of us from PGPX (class of 2009), IIM Ahmedabad, established IImagineIndia during the second wave of COVID-19, with a motivation to actively participate in the betterment of our society.
What is IImagineIndia's goal?
Our goal is to see an India in which every child in school is assured of world-class learning outcomes.
What sector does IImagineIndia work in?
Our objective is to support the education sector at grassroots level in India. In this endeavour we identify, evaluate and partner with smaller NGOs or Social Entrepreneurs that are capable of creating change in the education sector but are not able to garner enough support like their larger counterparts.
Why is IImagineIndia focusing on supporting NGOs instead of helping high achievers in school themselves?
We believe that learning poverty in primary education is a key challenge and it makes more sense to take an ecosystem approach to address areas that lead to it in the first place. It may be challenging to identify high achievers at pre-primary and primary stage, as everyone starts equal in our view.
What parameters do you use to evaluate which NGO requires your support?
We support NGOs/SEs focusing on improving pre-primary/primary education in India through a scalable approach leveraging technology.
