Power of Stories
  • Going to School was established in 2003 with the concept of design-driven stories for the under-served children of India. The simple idea behind creating stories was to change the way millions of students learn in rural based schools. The organization's content has also been included in the National Curriculum (NCERT) of India.
  • Programs: i) Girl Stars is the NGO's most well-known project, it is series of 15 children's stories of tales of ordinary girls who change their lives by going to school. ii) Be! An Entrepreneur is an attempt by the organization to teach children at schools of Bihar and Jharkhand skills on how to solve a problem, take initiative, build a sustainable enterprise and do well in school. iii) 'Scrappy News' started by Going To School is the first ever makeshift news channel in India run by kids questioning the world's biggest problems and solving them through design thinking. iv) Luna's Stories is a series of 10 stories where each story comes with a skill enhancement project for girls across Bihar and Jharkhand.
  • Outcome: Going to School teaches 300,000 students entrepreneurial skills under Be! An Entrepreneur. The organization has delivered 30 episodes of 'Scrappy News' till date. 200,000 sets of Girls Stars' stories has been published and distributed in government schools across 5 states.
