Model & Strategy

Avanti seeks to establish a new paradigm in science and math education in India: one that is consistent, scalable, affordable, and accessible to the nation’s 19 million high school students.

Avanti is an award-winning social enterprise offering high-quality education in their own Learning Centers and in schools to students aspiring to study at India’s top colleges. They use technology, video content and detailed instructional design to enable teachers to deliver high quality lessons even in the most remote corners of the nation. Avanti’s work is helping create a major shift in how Indian students learn. Their programs focus on teaching students how to collaborate effectively, learn independently and push the boundaries of their academic experience. Avanti is currently operating in 40 cities across India.
