Mission

Going to School creates design-driven stories to teach India's poorest children skills at school. We're an award-winning nonprofit trust with a 10-year track record of inspiring millions of children in India to stay in school, learn skills, use their education to transform their lives and create their own opportunities. Our journey began in 2003 when we created Going to School in India, a children's book that tells 25 stories of what school can be, from going to school in a tent in a desert to going to school in the dark with solar lanterns. We made the book into a pioneering TV series that aired on India's leading television networks reaching 65 million children. Our next series, Girl Stars, extraordinary tales of ordinary girls who have changed their lives by going to school, was 15 books, 15 short films and radio shows. Over 200,000 copies of Girl Stars books were read by girls in five states and 100 million people saw Girl Stars movies on national television. Both Going to School in India & Girl Stars stories were incorporated into national curriculum, where they continue to be read by over 10 million children to this day.
