To solve this, Labhya Foundation partners with governments, multilateral organisations & nonprofits to co-create scalable & contextual SEL programs for vulnerable children across public education systems. Labhya provides end-to-end support to its partners. Our support includes curriculum, teacher capacity building and monitoring & evaluation.
This has translated into a daily mandatory 30-minute class integrated across 20,000 public schools of India, where children learn and practice social and emotional skills like mindfulness, relationship building, action-orientation, goal setting and emotion control. In the past 4 years, Labhya’s programs have enabled significant behavioural changes among students and positively shifted student-teacher relationships.
Labhya has co-created & is ensuring effective implementation of the world’s largest SEL & India’s first programs namely ‘Happiness Curriculum’ & ‘Anandam Pathyacharya’ with Governments of Delhi & Uttarakhand respectively. Labhya impacts 2 Million+ vulnerable children across 2 states through our government partnerships.
Labhya has been supported and recognised globally for its pathbreaking programs for children. Labhya has received the Commonwealth Youth Award, won Harvard University’s Social Impact Fellowship Fund, and has been incubated by N/Core, India’s leading nonprofit incubator. Further, Labhya’s programs have been recognised by Harvard University’s International Education Week 2020, Nasdaq, Teach For All and international media. Labhya’s programs have also been visited by eminent personalities such as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
In the coming years their goal is to serve 7 Million vulnerable children across India and to partner with at least 2 more state governments to replicate and scale their program . They hope to capacitate existing and upcoming government partners to conduct state-wide student-level SEL assessments for all children who are a part of their programs.
