Who Are We?
Ignis Careers is a social enterprise that develops capacities in English and life skills through its programs with the teachers for the children of first generation learners from low income communities. Since its inception in 2014, Ignis has impacted over 12,048 teachers and 3,10,199 under served children across Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, and New Delhi through a wide range of customised learning programs.
To reduce social inequality through quality and purposeful education by transforming the teaching and learning processes.
Break away from rote learning and passive teaching practises and set a culture of active and collaborative learning
We reach and empower school leaders, teachers and children in socially disadvantaged communities to understand their need and communicate the benefits for improving the quality of education.
We design innovative, affordable and culturally relevant English and Life Skills programmes for the disadvantaged communities delivered through experiential and joyful learning approach.
The current education system only prepares students for examinations but deprives them of essential life skills. They are taught by rote and are very rarely given the opportunity to overcome real-life challenges using what they have learnt. The lack of life skills deprives them of the ability to make informed decisions and also drastically decreases their ability to understand and process information, thus contributing to their unemployability.
After four years of intensive research in the villages of India, we’ve come up with an English and Life Skills curriculum. We nurture a culture of learning by promoting joyful learning. The English and Life Skills curriculum enables them to read, write, listen and communicate with ease. Their ability to read and assimilate a wide variety of text becomes easier.
Now, five year after Ignis’ intervention, 90 percent of the children going to schools in the villages are enrolled in higher education in colleges. Now, in 2019, all the girls are still in school.
