A LOT of change makers!
But making change is difficult and that’s where we come in. Our mission is to create a movement of empowered educators to innovate and meaningfully make education better for children, now!!!
I was thoroughly impressed with the collaborative approach they took to design the workshop by involving the district administration from the design stage itself. I particularly appreciate the level of detail to which Barefoot Edu pursued this project.

Barefoot plans and implements every intervention thoroughly, with love. This entails looking at a problem from all sides and finding solutions, even unconventional ones. By working on a sustainable agriculture curriculum with them, I learned how to take the curriculum from a need of the community to sessions for students led by members of the community. It's rare as an intern to get that ownership, support and field experience.
Siddharth Parambi, Intern
Barefoot has shaken us with its activities. Earlier we used to study on the blackboard, reading and writing but now we learn practically and the biggest benefit has been that we have learnt things like how to handle children when they are crying, to keep the child’s feelings in mind at all times.
