Capacity Building of State Education System through technology

Teach from home, Learn from home

As a part of our CSR / philanthropic initiatives under Career Launcher Education Foundation (AP), we extend support to government schools and colleges across the country. Our intent is to make highest quality education available to the young scholars in the government schools and offer them a level playing field. The technology facilitated program of Project Aspiration has a long-term transformational capability as far as the school outcomes are concerned, more in the times as now, when the nations are crippled due to the unfortunate devastation caused by Corona Virus, COVID19.

The challenge COVID19 has posted to the entire education fraternity has made the governments now seriously look at technology facilitated education and CLEF (AP) with its pioneering work of the last two decades, with her parent CL Educated, has extended its capabilities to the central and state governments to ride upon its parent, its technological platforms to reach out to every child, from every marginal community, with an aim of no child is left behind.

Education Uninterrupted: Project Aspiration

The Project Aspiration aims at capacity building of State Education System through technology facilitation. It offers comprehensive solution to state education system delivering curriculum and career preparation support, directly into the homes of the children with elements including live teaching, on-demand content including recorded videos, assessments, performance benchmarking, academic counselling and real-time dashboard for the school leaders and designated department officials.

The pilot project of PROJECT ASPIRATION has been rolled out for the Govt of NCT, Delhi, by CLEF (AP), in the first week of APRIL, 2020, to reach in the next two weeks, about 1.6 Lakh students of grade XII and will slowly move on to cover about 19.6 Lakh students in due course, across all the grades. This is just the beginning. More states are knocking at the doors.

CLEF AP aims to facilitate education of every child, youth in every family in every state of this vast nation and beyond. In this endeavor it express gratitude for a few who have already come on board -

Education has the power to transform the communities and the nation. Let us keep it going, uninterrupted.


Government of NCT, Delhi has been the first to take off with Project Aspiration, under the threat from COVID19. CLEF AP has supported a project of Govt of NCT Delhi, in 2018-19, to support a program to facilitate the career aspirations of the students of Delhi, by helping students prepare for their career exams like IITJEE with remarkable results.

The Project Aspiration 2020 took off with class XII classes going digital in the first phase. Over 300 teachers were selected and got trained for being online educators. And about sixty of these went through a grilling week of training programme and fulfilled all the requirements to be certified as Online Educators and a few outstanding ones have been awarded Online Champion Educators. These champion educators will also hold the responsibility of master trainers as the project progresses.

As the first week of the phase 1 is ending, there are happy faces everywhere - the students, educators, schools and of course the education ministry. Here are a few stories emerging.- Project Aspiration 2019

Review & Report of Project Aspiration 2020

Mr. Manish Sisodia, DyCM Delhi and Education Minister, Report Card of 3 Weeks and 7 weeks - Parenting in the time of Corona

Quite a few things you would have heard from this video if you have watched in the entirety

  • Empowered teachers, the CHAMPION ONLINE EDUCATORS, who feel that they have at their disposal the capability and tools now to facilitate and impact the learning process of thousands of students at one go, that they have never experienced before.
  • Delighted students who are excited to have the best of the teachers from across Delhi appearing in front of them, virtually yet impactful, to engage them in innovative ways that is far beyond what they ever experienced in their regular classrooms. And they want the classes to continue, even after the schools reopen.
  • There is a demand from many many students across the country to watch these classes for their benefit as teachers are getting requests from across the country. Every child is the child of our nation.
  • Overwhelming delight of the Minister himself and Officers of the Education Ministry, the transformational impact these classes are having on every child and teacher. The Minister expressing that possibly, in a year or two down the line, the government may wonder, “Was there really a need to invest so much on building the brick and mortar infrastructure, while technology-enabled education, facilitation and learning can have far more meaningful and lasting impact.” (In Govt of NCT, Delhi 2020-2021 : The education sector received the highest share of allocation of ₹15,815 crore, which is 24.33% of the total budget.)
We are on our way to transform the way learning would happen in the future. Post COVID19 is not going to be the same again. May Indian education emerge stronger with quality enhanced and costs demolished with the best of teachers using best of tools and resources

Execution Timeline

As shared earlier CLEF had undertaken the pilot project of aspiration last year facilitating about 4000 students of Delhi Government schools to prepare for competitive exams like IITJEE and NEET. Many students finally join IITs and NITs. This year the intention was to reach out to entire class 8-12 students from marginal segments of the society.

Unfortunately, as Coronavirus has paralyzed the school and university education system, CLEF proposed to Delhi Government to run their entire academic facilitation of students across schools on the platform. After thoroughly whetting the project’s offerings in consultation with eminent educationists and relevant members of society, Govt of NCT, Delhi has embraced the Project Aspiration to facilitate its school education system.

The Project Aspiration has gone live with GOVT of NCT, Delhi

  • Teachers selected, trained and certified - One week: March 31, 2020-April 05, 2020
  • The phase 1.1 of the project execution - 10000 students of class XII - Started April 06, 2020
  • The Phase 1.2 scaled to 60000 students of class XII - April 13, 2020
  • The phase 1.3 scaled to cover entire class XII - 1.65 Lakhs - April 20, 2020

The following are on the board (total will be over 19.6 Lakh students)

  • The phase 2 classes 8-9-10 - last week of April
  • The phase 3 classes 5-6-7-11 - the following week

The offerings for each of the segments, Senior school, Middle School and Primary may differ, depending on the needs of every education board of the state. CLEF is endeavoring to reach out to as my states and universities as possible to run all the academic facilitation on the platform.

Infinity (😉); for a nation like India; we need unlimited funds

How you can support?

The project aspiration is the response to contribute to humanity, in this hour of utmost need. Education is the only way one can create a lasting impact, without it getting interrupted, by reaching every family that is trying to keep itself productively and emotionally engaged and reach every child within the family. The productive engagement of the child in meaningful learning is a great service one can render to every family, community and nation. Every engaged child will contribute to the happiness of the family.

I will support with my skillsets

The technology is the key and almost 80-90% of cost of the project is on technology. If you are a technology product or services organization, then you can add your might to our technology support armoury by adding every endeavour of yours – could be the backend video streaming, data server support, the academic delivery technology support, the customer relationship and enabling support, the after-class engagement support etc. We need you. CLICK HERE

I will support with technology

If you have capability or skillset to contribute or anchor a subject, skill that could be of immense value to the whole project, either academically - content, pedagogy, processes etc.

If you wish to facilitate the overall wellbeing of every family and child through creation of synchronous or asynchronous resources, classes, for physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, we will be delighted to have you on board. We need you. CLICK HERE

I will fund training for online educators

There are fantastic teachers who are darlings of students in the class, because of their

  • Command over the subject
  • Eagerness to learn and grow
  • Amazing pedagogy and classroom management
  • Engagement of children
  • Going beyond the call of duty

We need to train them to not only adapt but also master the riding of the technology platforms. We need funding to train them. We need you to help us. CLICK HERE

I will fund a child's education

Last but not the least, you can add value by contributing to the financial needs of the project. The needs are humungous. Imagine, while this endeavour has started to support about 20 Lakh children of a small state-union territory of Delhi state, what will be the numbers across the country. Quite a few states are approaching us and we wish to facilitate. We need every penny that one can add to our kitty. We need you. CLICK HERE

Institution, do you need our support to go digital?

If you are an institution, school or University, that wishes to go digital and reachout to every child / student in this hour of need, we will be more than happy to facilitate you. CLICK HERE
