WHO WE ARE
85% of brain development in a child happens before age of 8. Here at Rocket Learning we are driven by a single goal - to catalyze and strengthen foundational learning for 150 million young, low-income children in India. We achieve this by partnering with governments, teachers and communities. Our vision is to ensure school and life readiness for all young children by enabling access to age-appropriate learning in school and home. Quality early schooling can reduce primary school dropout rate, increase academic achievement and lifelong earning.
