We, (Education, Knowledge, Skills, Aptitude, Attitude, and Abilities for Qualification), are a K-12 education start-up. We are resolved and committed to solve five critical trade-offs that the education system faces today.
The first is the trade-off between the reach and the richness of education. The second is the trade-off between academic performance and learning outcomes. Third is the trade-off between standardisation and customisation of the learning inputs to the students. Fourth is the trade-off between the global and the local curricula and the fifth is the trade-off between the economic and social contexts of different nations.

We build and support scholastic, co-scholastic and skill development programs for the four life-cycle stages in K-12 education: Foundational Stage, Preparatory Stage, Middle Stage and Secondary Stage. We provide diversification of educational opportunities to develop generic and employability skills.
