Our Story

During the COVID 19 lockdown, children from low income families are unable to access learning and engagement while shut at home (unlike their better off peers who are able to interact with teachers through Zoom or video lessons on WhatsApp). PhoneShaala is reducing this inequality in access to education by providing a TOLL FREE number where children can call and learn from audio lessons free of cost.
In the post-COVID 19 era, PhoneShaala will continue to be a tool for after school assistance for teachers of children from low-income families.

Assistant Teacher Pre-secondary School, Banbeerpur, Dist. Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh

During the COVID19 quarantine I’ve been trying really hard to ensure that my students’ learning doesn’t stop. I am especially struggling to ensure that learning continues for students who don’t have access to the internet so that the learning gaps don’t widen and students continue to stay motivated and invested in learning. PhoneShaala will help make learning available for all regardless of their access to internet. It will help teachers like me in ensuring equal access to quality education. We could also use PhoneShaala for teaching learning not just during the lockdown but it will continue to be helpful even after the lockdown by allowing us to provide after school support and motivating parents to be involved in their child’s learning from home by giving them access to education and communication.
