Enabling Change Leaders to lead a systemic education transformation

In a world governed by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA), India’s education system has its challenges of scale and size. 220 million children, 6 million teachers, and 1.5 million schools – when we consider these numbers, we automatically think of a system that needs to ensure equal access to quality education for every child. With a number of civil society organizations working to improve education across the country, scaling the impact of systemic transformation, rather than reinventing the wheel is the crucial need of the hour.

“An incubator for early stage non-profits in the education sector, EduMentum aims to enable young change leaders to build robust contextual solutions to achieve systemic education transformation across India.”

Since 2017, EduMentum, a Shibulal Family Philanthropic initiative in partnership with Mantra4Change, has been creating an ecosystem that works collectively towards transforming education and fostering the importance of VUCA among early-stage organizations in the education space. The cohorts of EduMentum have built strong communities of practice, sharing their learning and collaborating on various levels to create sustainable solutions to education reaching the remotest parts of the country.
