Reimagine India

Short Summary

COVID impacted the education system of India in a variety of ways. Teachers were grappling with new ways to adapt and implement their curriculum in a completely digital environment, while students are getting adjusted to the study-from-home lifestyle with everything being done in front of screens.

Reimagine India was a hackathon designed to allow children to participate in this conversation and come up with creative ways to solve the challenges facing the Indian education sector.

From the hackathon, one of the motivated teams pursued the solution proposed beyond the hackathon which was then recognised by UNICEF as one of the Top 30 most inspiring Ideas of Change.

The kids just rocked it. They went on to build their own website to communicate their journey.

This was just so inspiring for all of us to witness this.
