Its mission is to use technology to create, enhance and monitor the delivery of education in an affordable, scalable and modular manner.
CLT India endeavours to strengthen the existing social structure and government schools with a network of support for pedagogy, technology, infrastructure and mentoring programs through collaboration.
CLT India is a certified Guidestar Gold level participant. It was chosen as a Dasra fellow for their Research Publication in partnership with USAID as one of the few Change Makers that are making a difference in the way girls are impacted in secondary schools.
CLT India addresses the challenge of shortage of teachers with subject expertise, student disengagement, lack of quality learning resources and missed opportunities in rural schools.
By giving equal learning opportunities for girls and boys with quality e-learning resources for STEM education, it is able to bridge many gaps, including the gender gap and digital divide.
