ARISE, or All Round Improvement in School Education, is the largest educational initiative under the school education programme of Tech Mahindra Foundation.
The whole-school turn around programme, which works with 65 schools, 19 partners, and 6 municipal corporations across India, aims to develop existing government and non-government schools into model schools of excellence.
ARISE builds upon along four crucial, connected dimensions of school improvement
- The academic dimension, to ensure that children acquire grade-appropriate learning with understanding
- The social dimension, to ensure that families and communities participate actively in the process of education along with children, teachers, school management and the system
- The infrastructural dimension, to ensure that schools and classrooms are happier, effective places of learning
- The organizational dimension, to ensure that schools work as effective units of education, functioning efficiently as well-managed organizations
