Shaping dreams through Experiential Education
Divaswapna literally means day-dreaming. We celebrate and nurture the day-dreamers in the kids through a fun-filled approach of experiential education. Contrary to the traditional notion of day-dreamers as lazy bums, we see them as highly creative minds who use their imaginative powers to see beyond the usual. Inspired by the ‘Divaswapna’ book written by Gijubhai Badheka, a pioneering educator, we set up a school in Sonebhadra district of Uttar Pradesh in 2012. The school currently caters to around 70 kids from disadvantaged background. We have now shifted our focus to Varanasi where we are working with affordable schools to integrate experiential methodologies in their day-to-day learning.

With the belief that experiential learning is the future of learning, our dream is to improve the quality of education in the affordable schools of India by introducing experiential learning through our carefully designed Divaswapna Labs. Divaswapna Labs is a dedicated activity space within school premises that provides hands-on learning experience to students and trains the teachers as facilitators to run the Labs. The Labs houses carefully designed activities that map with the curriculum followed in the school, thus bridging the gap between theory and practice. We are targeting 100 schools in Varanasi by 2019.
