"The Better World Initiative residents mapped complicated government processes in a disciplined, rigorous way. They came up with simple, no-cost solutions to simplify processes so that teachers focus more on children and their learning rather than administrative aspects."
Aditya Natraj Founder and director, Kaivalya Education Foundation
"Better World Initiative residents worked under many constraints in the education system. They have equipped our staff with modules so that they don't have to reinvent the wheel every time. When we talk to other people, we say that this is what great partnerships look like."
