|Full Name||:||Gautam Gauri|
|About||:||While pursuing an M.Phil in Education at the University of Cambridge, Gautam had a transformative learning experience that gave him a strong theoretical foundation in the field of education. He researched the aims and values of education as the subject of his dissertation. Gautam and his friends from school came up with an idea together – they wanted to start a school in rural Bihar. He believes that true education goes beyond being literate and securing a job. “Education involves the holistic growth of a child which helps her/him to make a connection between the self and the larger world,” he explains. In 2010, he was selected as a Changelooms fellow. Over the last 8 years, Gautam’s small project has blossomed into Diksha Foundation, a full fledged non- profit located in Patna that is now run by a 15-member team. Currently, Diksha runs three KHEL (Knowledge Hub for Education and Learning) centres in Patna, Nalanda and Delhi.|
