Agastya International Foundation (Agastya) is a transformative educational charity. Since its formation in 1999, Agastya is actively engaged in sparking curiosity and nurturing creativity through hands-on science education for poor rural children and teachers. It streams its vision and mission through a variety of channels including a Creativity Lab located on a 172-acre campus near Bangalore, 70 Mobile Labs spread across 10 states in India and 30 Science Centers spread across A.P. and Karnataka. Agastya advisors and members include entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, philanthropists, and teachers. To date, Agastya has directly touched (face-to-face) 6 million children and 200,000 teachers. The programs are holistically designed to spark creative-thinking and problem-solving skills, improve learning achievement, raise confidence and expand opportunities. Agastya’s educational intervention programs complement and work alongside government and other programs. An independent core group of educationists, scientists and investors lead Agastya’s efforts.
