The AVEHI ABACUS PROJECT has been working in the field of education since 1990, with the aim of
improving and strengthening the public education system so as to reach out to the marginalized
sections of society and to impact mainstream policy on education.
Our contribution to the Indian educational scenario is evident in the rich and relevant content,
appreciated and adopted by students, teachers and policy makers alike. We have developed
three teaching-learning modules integrating content from Social and Physical sciences. The
programmes are meant to supplement and augment the existing school curriculum in formal
schools and support post-literacy development in non-formal settings.
The AVEHI ABACUS PROJECT is based on the understanding that education, social justice and
environmental sustainability are intertwined. It believes in working for an education system
that recognizes the primacy of an active learner and hopes to support teachers to become
reflective and transformative intellectuals contributing to positive social change.
The AVEHI ABACUS PROJECT strives to influence the quality of teaching-learning in schools and on
teacher education platforms, with a view to equipping children with the skills and values that
will help them achieve their own potential and contribute positively to society. It also aims to
empower teachers to become active participants in the educational process. Driven by the
values of justice and equlity, the AVEHI ABACUS PROJECT strives to influence policies for the
formulation, acceptance and implementation of equal-quality free education for all children
from 0 to 18 years.
