(Whole school Transformation & STEM for Girls)
We envision a society wherein all children even in the remotest areas of North East India have access to quality education (SDG-4). We believe that inclusive and quality education for all is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. Our model is designed keeping in mind the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of Quality Education for All. NEAID has been working in Government schools to bring a systemic change in the school ecosystem by complementing the existing structures and process through it's two interventions i.e., Whole School Transformation and STEM for Girls.
The STEM for Girls program foster 21st century skills among young students by transforming Learning Ecosystems across the school-to-work continuum.
