300M Learning Portal by Katha

TADAA! allows underserved children in India to experience the joy of reading via a platform that supports childrens’ learning, social and emotional needs.

Mission & Goal

In association with Katha, a non-profit in education and children’s book publisher, Futureshift, built a 300M Learning Portal. This principally designed platform provides engaging, age-appropriate content, based on the best interest of the child. It utilizes minimal data collection to protect identity while still allowing users to move through facilitator-led levels of learning.

Challenges

Over 50% of children in India do not have access to the Internet. Technologies like 2G/3G have patchy coverage and do not carry high bandwidth. Although use of smartphones is on the rise, children do not have direct access to desktop computers and laptops on which to properly view and interact with learning content.

Outcomes

To date, Katha has served 2,474 communities through 1,862 school partnerships across 17 states in India to impact 10,402,655 youth. Their 300M Citizen’s Challenge goal is to reach 300 million children in India.

Next Steps

Need to address the challenge of access to the Internet, devices, and responsiveness to help ensure that children, especially those in rural and remote locations, can access online learning materials and achieve an optimal user experience.
