‘Shikshaantar’ means creating a difference in education. Tech Mahindra Foundation's Shikshaantar programme works towards creating happier classrooms by empowering teachers.
The most important component of the ‘Shikshaantar’ programme is professional development of primary government school teachers, principals, school inspectors, education officers, leaders and management officials. In particular, primary school teachers are trained to impart knowledge through art and craft, thus enabling child-centred learning.
The programme also enhances language capacities of teachers in Municipal Corporation Schools across India.
Shikshaantar had a target of 7 centres and to train 7161 teachers in 16-17.
