We believe that the alignment and engagement among all stakeholders are critical to transforming government schools. Also, awareness of quality education alone is not sufficient to nudge in sustainable behavioral change among parents and community towards government schools. At Self-Reliant India (SRI), we believe that improving classroom environment will create best teaching practices and thereby creating role models among students and teachers. Our theory of change is that government school will transform to deliver quality education through community participation and ownership.


One-day, underprivileged sections will attain a state of self-reliance


To provide access to quality education for economically weaker sections to achieve the state of self-reliance, We intend to transform government schools through engaging with parents, youth, community, school leaders, teachers, and creating alignment between all of them.
