About the Organization
India School Fund is an innovative nonprofit founded in 2005 by Harvard Business School (HBS) students to ensure effective delivery of education in poor rural areas of India, starting in a state where four million children do not attend school, and where more than 50% of kids who complete primary level still cannot read and count. ISF creates talent around clusters of schools tied to the local culture and economy. Students will not only acquire basic literacy and life skills but also develop an entrepreneurial mindset early in their development. The objective is to see all children evolve into empowered citizens, entrepreneurs, employees or graduates of higher education, thereby moving forward on the ladder of development.
