Introduction to Khoj

About Khoj

For 30 years now, we have been reaching out to children, listening to them, learning from them and gently teaching them to QUESTION EVERYTHING. Through innovative classroom exercises and freewheeling conversations, we tell children that the constitutional values of EQUALITY and JUSTICE are not textbook definitions, that have to be learn by heart and parroted in an exam, but essential parts of our EVERYDAY LIVES, and the very foundation of our DEMOCRACY.

We believe that learning can be fun when students are treated as thinking, feeling, active participants, rather than passive recipients, in the learning process. We aim to extend and evolve Khoj’s innovative educational modules that are being received well all over India. For over 20 years now we have been impacting students from varied, under-privileged sections of society in schools run by municipal/zilla parishad bodies as well as privately run schools all over India.

An extremely exciting course content for children. Children are enthused to participate in all activities, their minds are opened to look beyond the narrow confines of the existing syllabus and genuine understanding of diversity and secularism is transmitted. A very good effort for the freedom of mind , soul and choice.

Since 2013, this effort in the school through exploration of family and community histories has strengthened the confidence of children, widened their horizons and contributed to the overall growth.
