Systemic Transformation for Resilience,
Innovation, and Developing Education Ecosystem

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us into a lockdown in 2020. Just as we were coming out of a challenging year, an unprecedented second wave has yet again wreaked havoc across the nation. 

While India is reeling from the effects of an ongoing pandemic, it’s time for us to join hands and fight this together, help our overwhelmed healthcare system, and ensure we don’t lose any more lives.

Co-creating Towards Systemic Transformation

Our model is three-fold. While designing interventions for education with the government, we ensure the ownership of the system to improve independently. By developing partnerships with Civil Society Organizations, we support the system holistically across different domains and deepen our own contextual understanding across geographies. Deploying solutions by leveraging technology platforms, we enable data-driven decision making and increase reusability of our assets.

Co-creation and Collaboration are the tenets of achieving radical impact and transforming the system at scale. To this end, Mantra4Change initiates Collective Action through partnerships with Civil Society Organizations and State Governments
