Description: Over the last 9 years, Nihar Shanti Amla, India's highest-selling hair oil brand has been dedicating 5% of its profits to children's education. It has deployed various initiatives to bridge the gap in rural India's education system through online and on-ground activities. However, we realized that only 1 out of 10 students in grade 5 can read a full sentence in English. Only 3% of the rural Indian population can speak English. Additionally, even government school teachers themselves aren’t proficient in English since they also hail from similar backgrounds.

So, we wanted to educate the teachers of rural India, because only when the teachers become proficient in English, can the students also learn the language correctly. To do so, we needed to find methods that are direct, impactful, and innovative.

After months of collaboration with various entities and organizations, we developed a constructive training programme that could be deployed on a mass media platform to reach out to a large number of teachers across India. This English learning initiative was launched on Whatsapp, which has a reach of 500 million in rural India - making it free and easy to use. Thus, was born, Nihar Pathshala Funwala's 'Re-teach The Teachers.'
