Avanti Fellows designed Project Sankalp, a low-cost blended learning innovation that combines a structured curriculum, peer learning, teacher support, and video instruction. With support from Development Innovation Ventures and in partnership with the Government of Haryana, J-PAL, and the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, Avanti Fellows is conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to test the effectiveness of two versions of the program in public schools (with and without information and communication technology) against a control group using traditional classroom curriculums. Early studies show that Sankalp improves outcomes at a lower cost than comparable top education interventions for greater cost-effectiveness. Over three years, Avanti Fellows will expand to 240 schools with 36,000 students enrolled in grades 9 and 10. If results are sustained, there will be a strong case for increased interest and scaling support from several Indian state governments.

Problem

India has approximately 351 million youth under age 14 enrolled in school (World Bank, ASER), but international testing shows that India is ranked second-to-last in child enrollment/providing access to primary education among 73 participating countries. Lack of basic math and science skills can prevent many of India’s youth from realizing their full potential, resulting in lost opportunities and lower wages as adults.

Solution

Over three years, Avanti Fellows will expand to 240 schools with 36,000 students enrolled in grades 9 and 10. If results are sustained, there will be a strong case for increased interest and scaling support from several Indian state governments.
