Well-Qualified and Empathetic Teachers: Recognizing the importance of skilled educators, the Foundation will provide support through qualified teachers who possess subject expertise and empathy towards the students.

Holistic Education Approach: The girls’ schools will adopt a holistic education approach, focusing on academic excellence as well as the overall personality development of the students.

Community Engagement and Parental Involvement: The Foundation will actively engage with local communities and parents to foster a sense of community and collective responsibility. Regular parent-teacher meetings, workshops, and awareness programs will be conducted to emphasize the importance of education and encourage parental involvement in their daughters’ schooling.

Health and Hygiene: The Foundation understands that good health is essential for effective learning. Therefore, the schools will provide regular health check-ups, access to safe drinking water, and ensure the students’ overall well-being. Health and hygiene awareness programs will also be organized to promote healthy habits among the girls.

Career Guidance and Vocational Training: To empower the girls and equip them with skills for their future, the foundation will offer career guidance and vocational training programs. These initiatives will expose the students to various career options, develop their employability skills, and promote entrepreneurship, ultimately enabling them to become self-reliant and contribute positively to society.

School Support Programme -Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh

To offer quality education for girls belonging to underprivileged and marginalized sections, Mobius Foundation aims to support girls’ schools in Uttar Pradesh. In pursuit of the project objectives, a team comprising two employees of Mobius viz. Mrs. Poonam Parihar, Manager Operation, and Ms. Mamta Giri, Project Associate visited the Chitrakoot district of Uttar Pradesh on March 18, 2023 to identify the girls’ schools.

After the survey, the team came to know that all the girls’ schools are now converted to co-ed schools. The Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) were the only identified schools which are for girls. KGBV are residential girls’ schools launched by the Government of India in educationally backward blocks (EBBs) of the country at upper primary level for girls belonging predominantly to the SC, ST, OBC and minorities.

In Chitrakoot, KGBV are present in all blocks (Pahari, Mau, Shivrampur and Manikpur). As the project area was identified, the second visit of the MF team on 24 April 2023 was KGBV focused.

The team recognized the challenges faced in KGBV and areas of intervention including infrastructure, teacher’s empowerment, skill development, health support, etc.

To support and attain the objectives, MF is collaborating with some NGOs to fill up the gaps in academics, empowering teachers and will also work in close coordination with existing units of the Department of Education across various levels.

The implementation of the project will start in July 2023 for a period of 10 years with periodic reviews of 3 years and will improve the lives of more than 400 girls.


School support program – Madhya Pradesh

Sheopur and Satna districts

To gain a thorough understanding of the government-powered education landscape of Madhya Pradesh, a team comprising of Ms. Jessica Gill Sr. Research Associate and Ms. Suman Kumari, Project Associate visited Bhopal in March and met with senior officials in the Department of Education and the Ministry of Tribal Affairs. The meeting with them gave a clear roadmap of areas of intervention and the demographics of the 2 districts.

Intervention areas – Academics, Life skills training and Health and Hygiene.

Sheopur District – Sheopur is home to the Sahariya tribes which is an ethnic group in Madhya Pradesh. They are classified as a particularly vulnerable tribal group. Their habitats are located in the forest area. They are considered the most economically underdeveloped and socially backward. The educational needs of tribal children in Madhya Pradesh are primarily addressed through residential schools called Ashram schools. The biggest lacunae noted in the field of tribal education is the inadequate Human Resources to deliver quality education being cognisant and sensitized on a tribal context.

Mobius Foundation has adopted a residential school with 200 Sahariya girls from classes 6 -12 in Sheopur.

In Satna, the foundation has adopted 2 Girls’ schools first “Girls Middle School Unchera along with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Girls Hostel” situated in the village & block Unchera, District Satna and second is “Government Higher Secondary School, Unchera along with Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya Residential Hostel situated in village & Block Unchera, District Satna” from classes 6-12 with an overall capacity of 900 girls approximately.

We will be conducting an extensive need analysis study in the month of July to assess the learning outcomes of these girls.

This study will enable us to evaluate the effectiveness of the current educational program and identify areas for improvement that can be implemented to enhance the learning outcomes of the girls.

The need analysis will consider various factors such as teaching methodologies, basic infrastructure, and the overall environment that impact the learning process of the students.


Think Tank

The think tank is envisioned as a dynamic space dedicated to nurturing a transformative culture of sustainable practices.

Our Mission is research-led action, as we believe in “creating a meaningful change through contemplative action”

Vision: The goal is to build awareness and understanding of sustainability issues among policymakers, businesses, and the general public.


Think Tank is a public interest research and advocacy organization based in New Delhi. It is specifically designed to create awareness about problems and propose sustainable solutions.

A team consists of researchers with expertise in key research area such as Climate change, ecological disaster, climate finance, economics, public policy, forestry, education, renewables, climate resilient agriculture, CBG/Biogas etc. Their work involves conducting research and analysis on various sustainability and environmental issues, using a variety of research methods to gather information and provide insights. Once the research is completed, the topic disseminates its findings through various channels, including publications, presentations, and media outreach.

One of the Research Associates, Mr. Pawan Jai Singh Rathore published multiple articles under the guidance of Mr. Praveen Garg, Advisor to the organization and other research in other areas is in process.

The article published is as follows:

  1. Green Bonds article

Topic: Climate Finance: Jumping on the Green Bondwagon

Published in: BW Business World

About: The article highlights the recent Rs. 16,000 crores issue of ‘Green Bonds’ by India, and explores the green bond landscape of India’s financial markets. A green bond is debt instrument which limits the use of its proceeds to ‘Green Projects’ like renewable energy projects, natural resource conservation, climate change mitigation etc. India’s green bond market has grown significantly in the last decade, and with the entry of these government sponsored bonds India’s efforts towards sustainability would get a much-needed financial boost.

  1. Tiger bonds article

Topic: Tiger bonds- overcoming the financial challenge

Published in: Business Standard

India’s conservation efforts are beset with challenges, but there is none greater than the lack of financial support for its Protected Areas. The article charts an alternative path for India’s fund starved Project Tiger, by advocating the use of bond markets to augment the fund flow to protected areas. These so called ‘Tiger Bonds’ would raise funds from green investors and deliver them to the national parks, thereby aiding the state in wildlife conservation.
