Who we are

Meghshala Trust provides government school teachers with high quality, engaging, curriculum-aligned, locally contextualised and downloadable lessons in vernacular languages as well as in English. This is offered via an easy-to-use mobile app or we provide tabs with preloaded content to those teachers who are working from remote places with poor network connectivity. Meghshala also supports the teachers to access both the tech as well as the pedagogy nested in each lesson. We believe that teachers in underprivileged communities can create a huge change in educational outcomes if they are supported with high-quality teaching resources that are easily accessible and aligned with their daily needs.

Our work and its impact

We are currently working actively in five states - Karnataka, Meghalaya, Delhi, Sikkim and Manipur - and have impacted around 10,000+ students. With the help of our funders we provide hardware to selected government schools through which they are able to access Meghshala’s content. Our team supports the teachers throughout the project’s duration with regular school visits, classroom observations, pedagogy and CAREC skill training.

The introduction of Meghshala e-lessons in classrooms has exposed the teachers to new teaching and learning styles. Some of the outcomes we have witnessed are:
1. Teachers feel empowered and develop their own content.
2. Teachers create voice overs for lessons in their regional languages for YouTube.
3. Teachers become better facilitators which leads to experiential learning in classrooms.
4. Tech intervention in the classrooms makes both the teachers and the students tech savvy.
5. Students develop critical thinking and reasoning abilities and work actively to solve real life problems around them.
6. Planning lessons is quicker and easier for teachers.
7. Positive pedagogical benefits for students.

How we will utilise these books

Imagine growing up in a world without stories. In rural areas of Karnataka, South Delhi and Meghalaya, the public schools here do not have libraries. The students are not exposed to the world of books. We want to widen their knowledge and help their imagination take flight. We want them to understand that there is so much more in this world to learn and to see. The funds from our crowdfunding campaign will help us get books for libraries in these areas and introduce each child to the joy of reading. The multilingual storybooks from Pratham Books will open up a world of new opportunities for these children.
