ShikshaLokam enables and amplifies leadership development opportunities for individuals and institutions engaged in K-12 education systems.

Founded in 2017, ShikshaLokam is an Education Leadership Platform under the aegis of Shibulal Family Philanthropic Initiative. It is a manifestation of 
Societal Platform thinking, a systemic method to resolve complex societal challenges with speed, at scale, sustainably.

As a platform for education leadership, ShikshaLokam offers open-source technology capabilities and resources to a variety of ecosystem players, including Individuals, NGOs, and Government. ShikshaLokam aims to do so in ways that support education leadership development at a large scale with high impact. Keeping the Societal Platform construct, ShikshaLokam works towards distributing the ability to solve the gaps that exist in education leadership development space and improving the agency of actors in the ecosystem to drive large scale educational change programs.
