Job Description

Our vision: An India of happy healthy childhoods

Problem Statement: One-in-five of the world’s poor live in India, where 84million children are out of school and 195million rural children are not learning at their ‘grade level’.

In areas like Bakhel Panchayat – an indigenous Adivasi community in Southern Rajasthan– one in seven children die before their 5th birthday, 61% of children are malnourished and the female literacy rate is 10.7%.

Historical attempts to address these challenges have failed.

What can be done?

Inspiring and innovative approaches, delivering health and education services with community participation are essential for eradicating rural poverty in India. Centres acting as hubs for local transformation and demonstrating how change happens are needed to germinate best practice across rural India.

What Educate for Life aspires to achieve

1. Create one of the world’s most inspiring rural schools
Hunar Ghar School is recognised regionally for its innovative methods and excellent learning outcomes while working with one of India’s poorest communities. By 2021 the school plans to serve over 650 children per year, providing a holistic education which inspires educational actors globally.

2. Transform learning and health outcomes in a 100 square km area
We aim to turn a region with a reputation for ‘failure’ into a story of success and transformation. From 2018, some health and education practices that have brought success at Hunar Ghar will be implemented in 8 communities in the area, transforming outcomes across a region the size of Oxford and directly benefiting over 10,000 people per year.

3. Champion educational rights for 300million children in rural India
We aim to be a voice for 84million out of school children in India and to champion the rights of over 300million children in village schools, in which standards remain poor. From 2018 we will launch a rural education manifesto, provide school improvement resources, celebrate successes in rural education and campaign for systems improvement. We aim to become a small organisation with a big impact; supporting positive change at a national level for children in rural schools across India.
