Himmotthan have developed a profound understanding of the challenges in the education as well as of the needs of various communities and stakeholders across Central and Western Himalayan regions. Ensuring quality education for all children, especially those from marginalized backgrounds, is central to the strategy of Himmotthan. The focus is not just on age-and-grade-appropriate learning in curricular subjects such as language and mathematics; it is also on leveraging 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaborative learning and the use of technology to promote learning – skills that ensure effective participation in a vibrant democracy. The focus of the Himmotthan educational strategies is also to democratize the functioning of educational institutions, enabling communities to take ownership of these institutions, and hold them accountable. All stakeholders – school management, teachers, children, parents – are encouraged to work together towards a common goal.
