CLT India has set itself the ambitious goal of taking the e-Patashale program over multiple platforms with new content and enhanced delivery to 10 million learners by 2021. In order to achieve this, we will require large scale and committed collaborations through global philanthropy.
Leveraging on the CLT international arm in the U.S. and its new representation in France, additional geographies in Europe and the Middle East are also being explored for deep partnerships with individuals, corporations and governments – anyone who shares our commitment to empowering young people to realize their dreams, irrespective of the challenges their immediate circumstances may pose to them gaining basic literacy and life skills, as well as access to quality education in general.
Our accomplished and senior representatives in overseas locations are constantly engaging to identify thought partners and raise resources - funding, skills and technology sponsorships, etc. - and channel them to CLT’s global initiatives. They are also exploring adaptation and delivery options in other developing areas facing similar challenges within underserved communities.
While significant effort and resources have already gone into reaching 1 million learners today, our 2021 goal will require a new approach and significant investment in our methods of developing, delivering and measuring outcomes in order to effectively educate and inspire today’s youth in the most relevant and meaningful ways. We must continue to be both innovative and transformative, and most of all, easily accessible and deeply relevant to our targeted audience.
Over the years, our team at CLT India has developed an expertise which we are ready to deploy across India and in other developing countries. By examining every obstacle standing in the way of achieving our goals, and finding appropriate solutions to each one, we have not only developed a particular expertise, but a process which is scalable, sustainable, and adaptable to other contexts.
Through the many iterations of our educational offerings, we are able now to do a thorough assessment and analysis of any particular context, identify the obstacles to attaining the desired goals, and partner with teachers, school administrators and other local authorities, as well as corporate sponsors to offer customized solutions. Once we have understood the context, we can offer end-to-end solutions that are sustainable within each environment because they are based on deep partnerships with local experts.
In an age where technology is constantly blurring the lines in the way knowledge and information flow across continents and between individuals, there are still areas where learning is a real challenge. Whether due to lack of basic infrastructure, qualified teachers or internet access, underserved communities across India and in other developing countries are being left behind in this new digital age.
CLT’s mission is to reach these areas of the population and give them the opportunity to find their place and achieve their potential in a connected world. CLT India has a 20-year track record. We have articulated and demonstrated the viability and improved outcomes of our learning solutions. Through our customized use of ICTs in education, we are reaching many more children in a more direct, impactful and sustainable way than ever before.
