The Process

Trained volunteers across the country deliver well-curated lessons dotted with fun activities. Classes happen over the weekends.
The Ignite 2.0 pilot was launched after extensive national consultation with volunteers across 8 chapters during which 360 challenges were collected. Of all the solutions that came out of the skip level meeting process, Ignite 2.0 idea had the highest acceptance rate of 89%

Ignite 2.0 pilot will run parallelly with Ignite Shelters Program and will have engagement periods of 10 – 15 weeks and modularised content to better accompany the classes held.
The projects taken up in the first cycle: NMMS scholarship exam coaching, Kanini, Little Einsteins Mathematics & Speak Out (Let’s Teach English)
