Namya Mahajan: Propelling Early Childhood Care and Education through Rocket Learning
Namya: Early childhood care and education (ECCE) is one of the “greatest and most powerful equalizers” according to India's National Education Policy. More than 90% of brain development occurs by this age, and research from all over the world shows that access to better ECCE is related to lower rates of dropout from school, increased earning potential, and better life outcomes. However, low-income children in India don't have access to any sort of ECCE, either through institutions or through their parents at home. Our work at Rocket Learning addresses this education gap by helping parents better support their children at home through age-appropriate learning, nudges, and reminders.
