An Empowered society, which works towards giving every child the right to have education at least till secondary school level.
IDEA, Foundation for Initiatives in Development and Education for All was started by a group of social workers and social scientists in 2002, in order to adopt a holistic approach to deal with the problem of school dropout. It also has a base of an in depth research done by one of the Founder member on the topic of School Dropout.
Dr. Usha Pillai – the Co-Founder and Director has around 28 years experience in the Developmental sector. IDEA Foundation has originated from the findings of her Ph.D study on School dropouts. She says IDEA believes in a holistic approach to address issues in educating the underprivileged children as the reason/ reasons for dropping out of school or being excluded from the mainstream education are different from child to child.
