Mission

The Problem: The quality of education available to youth from low income backgrounds in India is woeful and vast numbers of them, including college graduates, are unemployable in professional positions. Many will end up being under-employed for their working lives. Few break the cycle of poverty. Freedom English Academy's mission is to address this problem.

Freedom English Academy

The Problem: The quality of education available to youth from low income backgrounds in India is woeful and vast numbers of them, including college graduates, are unemployable in professional positions. Many will end up being under-employed for their working lives. Few break the cycle of poverty. FEA’s mission is to address this problem.

FEA has developed a curriculum specific to the circumstances of low-income youth in India. This instills five key skills that the target population does not acquire from the formal education system:

1) Non-cognitive, personality development and life skills. These include self-confidence, drive, discipline perseverance, a growth mindset, critical thinking skills, communication and collaboration skills, ethics, resilience, adaptability, self-esteem, self-reliance, conscientiousness and a sense of community, etc.

2) English language skills, to a level that makes one effective in the workplace. Taught using a method of debate and discovery.

3) MOOCs, in a classroom setting to begin with, to have the tools to become a lifelong learner.

4) Mentorship by a successful and mature adult who can be a role model and introduce other role models.

5) Career guidance.
