Going to School makes beautiful, design-driven stories to inspire the poorest children and young people in India to stay in school to learn skills. It makes storybooks that teach entrepreneurial skills, big mass-media appeal movies about hero entrepreneurs and and tracks its change in dynamic ways. Each week as children read one book, they create a skills project in their community. The organisation collects, grades and logs their project, tracking every one of the 100,000 children in its program through their skill-learning journey.
