Our ultimate vision is a world in which each and every child gets access to a high-quality education – regardless of the circumstances of his or her birth.
The Learning Yogi Foundation is an 80G certified non-profit organisation in India whose mission is to distribute low-cost tablets containing the Atlas Mission game to low-income communities in India and other countries.
This will help children in these communities to get access to educational opportunities that will enable them to escape the vicious cycle of poverty that their families have been trapped in for generations.
The foundation currently runs an experimental learning center in a village called Piali, located 2 hours from Kolkata.
It is also running programs in different low-income communities, orphanages and government schools in Bangalore.
The Atlas Mission has already been proven to produce significant improvements in learning outcomes amongst underprivileged children.
For instance, in a study conducted in Bangalore (India), underprivileged children who played with the Atlas Mission for a month increased their vocabulary by 50% and their reading scores by 75%.
More importantly, they were able to use the skills they had learned by playing the game to read out novel words which they had not been exposed to in the game, demonstrating learning at a much deeper and conceptual level.
