ThinkZone is an award-winning social enterprise that works towards improving the educational outcomes of children from under-resourced communities using a 'tech plus touch' model and activity-based methodology. We do this by empowering community educators, school teachers, public childcare workers, and parents to deliver quality early-childhood and primary grade education programs.
Zakia couldn't communicate much with her family and friends before she joined ThinkZone. She is a first-generation learner and had never received education in a proper learning environment before. She could not hold pencils properly and had very poor hand-eye coordination. Her parents decided to enroll her at the ThinkZone center in her village. With the help of the physical activities of the ECE Program at ThinkZone, she is gradually overcoming these issues. Now she is quite confident in writing and can play games with friends and teachers.
Rupa is an anganwadi worker in a village. Before ThinkZone's intervention, she used to focus on proper nutrition and health services for children enrolled in her anganwadi. During the training sessions at ThinkZone she realized how dedicating one hour in a day towards learning activities can bring a positive change in the physical, social, language and memory skills of the children. Now, every day she takes out time to educate kids using an activity-based approach. She also inspires other anganwadi workers to follow the ThinkZone process.
Mamta is a mother of two in a village of Bhadrak, Odisha. Unfortunately, she could not finish her studies and now wants her children to get access to quality education. She was more than happy to send her kids to ThinkZone when she got to know of it. It has been over a year and both her kids have excelled at the ThinkZone centers. She is also happy because she gets to be a part of the process, through monthly parent meetings. She regularly interacts with the ThinkZone teacher and also learns activities from her so that she can create a learning environment for her kids at home as well.
