Punjab Education Collective

The Punjab Education Collective exists to transform the public education system of the state of Punjab, India, and improve its educational standards against global benchmarks. It does this by identifying challenges faced by stakeholders on the ground and then co-creating solutions to improve the educational experience.

It is a collective of four organizations in the education space working together to impact 2.3 million students across 19,000 government schools in Punjab. Its co-created programmes involve parents, teachers, school and district administrators, NGOs, the private sector and young people themselves. These programmes aim to design solutions that leverage open technology to work at scale.
