Higher education and the workplace across India lay a huge premium on English language proficiency. This has resulted in an aspiration for English language skills among all sections of the population. This has led to a proliferation of private English medium schools and even government schools offering English medium education, serving semi-urban, rural and underprivileged sections of society. However, even after 10+ years of English medium schooling or the study of English as a subject, students still remain substantially deficient in English language skills. The students face the further prospect of poor outcomes in other subjects as well. A majority of the teachers teaching these students themselves have very limited English skills. Karadi Path is a for profit social venture that seeks to address this need through low-cost, sustainable and scalable solution through our programs. Our methodology is an indigenously developed language learning solution based on the mother tongue learning approach and the unique Indian experience of multilingualism. The content from our books can be delivered effectively even by teachers with limited English skills and at low costs.
These are called Magic English programs.
These are called Power English programs.
We run our programs through hub and spoke model. We open small outlets in the rural areas where our books are kept for sale.
