Do. Think. Learn.
AMMACHI Labs has created the 2nd Foundation, a new education initiative for teaching 21st-century skills to school children and young adults in rural India.
If the first foundation of education is provided by the school and community in the basic literacies and values, the 2nd Foundation fortifies these with the 21st century skills. We put equal emphasis on teaching essential life and social problem solving skills alongside advanced technical skills like programming, robotics and hardware prototyping. This unique mix ensures that the youth build up resilience to face all eventualities that an unpredictable future brings.
Combining Technology with Social/Emotional Learning
The 2nd Foundation workshops reimagine education holistically and combine high technology with social and emotional learning. The workshops are taught in schools and rural areas across India and are delivered by young graduates who have been trained as trainers by AMMACHI Labs, fostering a peer-to-peer learning environment that is conducive to learning.
The technical workshops and social/emotional learning workshops are woven together to create a unified platform for deeper and more integrated learning.
