Janyaa, whose name translates to life, is a non-profit organization founded by Ms. Venu Nadella in 2010, whose mission is enable creative problem-solving skills in underprivileged children by applying science & math to their daily lives through experiential learning. Janyaas vision is to transform the way teachers impart science and math knowledge and build a strong foundation for STEM learning in high school children. While Janyaa is based out of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, it has a pan-India reach with operational focus on Telangana and AP.

Janyaa’s programs include:

  1. Janyaa Lab In a Box (JLIB) - Children in Grades 6th-10th (enrolled in government schools) learn co-curricular science and math concepts through hands-on learning. The school’s Science and Math teachers are trained on Janyaa training methodology so as to impart the knowledge to children. The JLIB Kit comprises 500+ science and math experiments developed in partnership with Stanford alumni, government teachers, and science & mathematics experts.
  2. Janyaa Social Innovation Challenge (JSIC) – At next stage, children apply the Janyaa learning to develop solutions or models to solve daily-life or community problems such as water or resource conversation, safe drinking water etc.   as part of an inter-school science contest.
  3. Janyaa Children2Community Solutions (JCCS)- Models developed by children are implemented at the school or community level with donor support so children can see their creative solutions come to life. This JLIB-JSIC-JCCS program is an end to end model, unique to Janyaa.
  4. Janyaa Nature Lab (JNL)- Children learn science, math & commerce concepts in relationship to nature and apply them to their school gardens. They learn life skills, become environmentally aware, practice teamwork, learn budgeting/book keeping, and develop taste for natural & healthy foods as a result.
  5. Janyaa Learn from Home-Online Program (JLH) - Launched in 2020 in response to COVID-19 school closures, JLH involves students learning science/math experiments via weekly interactive online sessions delivered by Janyaa resource persons using experiment material easily procured from their homes.
