How a group of young Delhiites are shifting Public Education Systems through Social-Emotional Learning

The Public Education System of India has always been a subject of intricate debate. However, this debate has largely been confined to federal institutions and other alternate institution of scale and stature. It is rare to see youngsters engaging in this debate; if there’s any, the participation is restricted to commentary on social media. To change this narrative, Vedant Jain and his colleagues, a group of young minds from Delhi decided to directly engage in this dialogue and take things in their hands. Focussing on a specific predicament, the group realised that the public education system does not equip students to overcome their socioeconomic and social-emotional adversities. After extensive research and strategising, the group launched the Labhya Foundation with a motive to create scalable ‘Social-Emotional Learning’ interventions integrated within PESs (public education system) to enable children to tap into their true potential.
