“We have been extremely focussed on our successful interventions across Indian states, such as Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra. Square Panda recently won the National Startup Award 2021 in the category ‘Education & Skill Development for Teacher Training. Our vision is to help every child, teacher, and community achieve their full potential,” said Andre Agassi.

Dharmendra Pradhan took the time to learn more about EdTech's plans for India and its goal of making a good difference in students' lives. He also used Twitter to share his comments on the meeting.

The launch of SquarePanda's signature programme, "Aarambh," which covers Foundational Literacy & Numeracy, English Language Proficiency, Educator Empowerment, and Anganwadi Worker Upskilling, has given the company a thorough understanding of India's particular educational needs. It also provides a base to support the development of NCFs and related resources for-

● The National Curriculum Framework for School Education (NCFSE)

● The National Curriculum Framework for Early Childhood Care & Education (NCFECCE)

● The National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education (NCFTE)

● The National Curriculum Framework for Adult Education (NCFAE)

“Our global team of 250+ experts can leverage both neuroscience and cutting-edge technology to improve learning outcomes from pre-primary through secondary grades. Our work has impacted multiple factors that influence a child’s educational achievement across the lifetime of their education journey, such as learning, teacher support, parent support, educational infrastructure, access to technology, health, & exposure to other skills”, added Ashish Jhalani.

Working with the government on both a policy and execution level is Ashish Jhalani, who spends some time there. He recently co-authored a report for the Economic Advisory Council of the Prime Minister titled "The State of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy in India" and is soon to publish the eagerly awaited "Pencil Power Report," which charts the future of ECCE in India.

“Getting the education equation right is essential in order to build the India of tomorrow and drive the national growth-building agenda,” said Andy Butler.
