Bridging Gaps

Welcome to Climate Quill, where words become a force for tackling climate change. 

As part of the EdJustice Foundation, EdClimate wishes to use your writing skills to inspire change in the way people think about sustainability and push them towards a greener lifestyle.

Climate Quill

Climate change is one of the most concering issues of our day. There is an urgent need to inform young people on the origins, ill-effects, and deliberate on potential solutions of the same as the world's temperature rises. In light of this, Edjustice is pleased to announce an essay writing contest on the theme “Tackling Climate Change”to address the subject of climate change.


Today, half of the world's population falls under the age of 30, with the vast majority of them already living or seeking to live in cities. Yet, the potential of young people to drive change has not been fully realised. Young people are rarely invited to the decision-making table, and they frequently lack the financial resources to engage in the political sphere.


The major goal of this competition is to educate students on the origins, consequences, and viable solutions to climate change. An effective essay is one that addresses the problem in an original and creative way, while providing practical answers to the given issue. With an idea to encourage students to think critically and develop a proactive approach towards mitigating the impact of climate change we invite online submissions from students for the Essay Competition on the above mentioned theme.

The EdConnect Mentoring program connects committed and educated mentors from across the globe to Bihar’s government school students (above 14 years of age) with the aim to facilitate meaningful learning and holistic development of students. Special attention is given to the mentor-mentee relationships to ensure that a strong and healthy bond is nurtured and that the students are secured of mature guidance and support. 


Through regular virtual or telephonic interactions, the mentor guides and supports the mentee in his/her academic and extracurricular pursuits and aids them in their intellectual, emotional and social growth. The program is also an attempt to bring attention to the deplorable condition of public education in Bihar by connecting an unaware outsider to the system’s worst-hit stakeholders - its students. 


The program adopts a multi-faceted design with regard to facilitating soft skills and personality development as well as academics and short-term support. Mentor-mentee pairing is guided by the experience and profile of the mentor and the mentee’s array of interests and expectations. 


If you are an undergraduate student or above, available to talk to your mentee at least twice a week, willing to teach and guide your mentee regularly, and are dedicated to sharing knowledge and creating lasting relationships - then join us to become a mentor!


Gyaan Daan

We believe that the most indestructible treasure that humans possess is knowledge and that more of it can be achieved simply by sharing it. By volunteering our time, effort and knowledge we can unlock a world of possibilities for our nation’s students and unleash an unprecedented education revolution.

Know More

At EdJustice, we fervently believe in the power of sharing knowledge to usher in an education revolution. We hold that the active participation and exposure of citizens from all walks of life to the grim realities of Bihar’s public education system would bring well-deserved and urgently-needed attention to the system. 


Through Gyaan Daan, we seek to mobilise a team of 100 volunteers or Shiksha Saathis in every district of Bihar to take lead in facilitating and supporting EdJustice’s various interventions on-ground. They will be working closely with government schools in their respective districts to provide academic and extracurricular support to students, depending on their expertise and time commitment. 


Given an abysmal dearth of subject-specific teachers in Bihar, your superior skill-sets and expertise will add tremendous value to the academic take-aways of students. As an on-ground teaching facilitator and education advocate, you can discover and nurture India’s next leading scientists, doctors, musicians and artists. We are looking forward to having you as a Shiksha Saathi in our District Team!

Shiksha Setu

Teaching is the art of assisting discovery, of nurturing the limitless potential of young minds and of allowing them to grow and learn alongside you. All teachers are united by this very commitment to society and its young generation. By bringing teachers from diverse backgrounds to a common platform, we attempt to become a bridge between those who can access cutting edge teaching resources and those who teach in more austere settings.

Know More

Shiksha Setu was conceived with the vision to bridge the gap in academic-delivery and student-engagement skills of teachers between those who are employed in state-run schools in rural areas and the ones who teach in urban areas. 


In its current modality, teachers from various government schools in Bihar engage with senior teachers (with more than 15-20 years of experience) from top schools in Delhi-NCR and Gujarat through weekly virtual sessions. The programme is designed to facilitate collaborative learning with respect to best practices, new methods of teaching, subject-specific learning, digital methods of education-delivery and sensitisation to challenges faced by students.  


The Programme runs for a duration of 2.5 months or 10 sessions. Each cohort consists of 30 participants. Participants are awarded a certificate of participation upon the successful completion of the Programme. 

If you are a current B.Ed./ M.Ed. student enrolled in a government-run institute or a teacher employed in a government school in Bihar, and are interested in learning about fresh paradigms to teaching, apply to the Shiksha Setu Programme now!

As much as Science and Mathematics are commended in India and students encouraged to choose these subjects as windows to a world of academic possibilities, a large section of students find themselves unable to access basic academic resources and guidance to chart their careers in these disciplines. We believe that through focussed mentoring, academic material support and sustained guidance, exceptional students can beat all odds and unfurl their potential.

Schools are spaces where students learn their ABC's and their 123's. But what we forget is that schools are also the spaces where young minds learn important skills that would prove useful for the rest of their lives. Their future is shaped through classroom training and engagement with other students, staff, and workers. While it would be difficult to ascertain the full spectrum of learning a student receives, they become a sharper thinker, empathetic worker, and successful leader.  Unfortunately, with the shift to digital given the pandemic, this schooling experience has been lost.
