Building Public Education
Systems that refuse to
let children down
We are a systems change and advisory organization.
In our two-fold approach to change, we build the capacity of government system leaders and we influence system processes. In partnership with the local and state education bodies, we co-create programs that shift teaching-learning practices and improve student learning and well-being. This work coupled with our research and advisory support to influence policies, we hope to create effective public education systems in India.
What do we do?
We solve systemic problems with systemic solutions.

only the tip of the iceberg.

Our Pathways To Impact
LFE began with a small team and an impactful realisation:
No single private enterprise or consortium could equitably empower 250 million school-going children with an excellent education, and therefore, it is critical to strengthen the existing public education system. Half a decade later, it is now a full-fledged organisation with a dedicated team and the same core purpose.
I've seen them grow through the years-- I wish them all the success.
I remember recruiting the founding team to work with PMC schools a few years back, where they began their journey to improve government school systems. I do hope LFE truly succeeds and wish the team all the success for the future.
