Our Vision

To evolve models of meaningful, relevant & holistic education for communities that currently have limited access, specifically women, youth and adolescents.

Our Mission

Over the next 5 years, we aim to train 5,000 youth and women to be self-aware and access sustainable livelihood opportunities 

“Education is freedom" - Paulo Freire

Our Communities


At 25%, the female labour force participation rate in India is one of the lowest in the world. The percentage of women entrepreneurs is an abysmal 14% and in the next generation, 45% young women are not in education, employment or training. We believe that education and economic empowerment hold the key to improving the quality of life of women in India.

50 % have not completed grade 10.  Our focus is on them.

Youth & Adolescents

India's growth story hinges on its large youth population, with 65% of Indians being under 35 years old.
But only 5% of these youth are formally skilled and more than half of youth will leave secondary school without acquiring the skills needed for a decent job. They are also aware of just 7 out of the 250 career pathways available. Additionally, they are unable to access relevant employment opportunities with 90% of colleges not having fully functioning placement cells.

Who We Are

Having worked together in the development space as a team for the last many years, we decided to start up an initiative to deepen our work in education for the under-served communities. And as we do that - we hope to build an organisation that reflects the values that we three share - Joy, Excellence and Generosity. Ikka Learning is a platform for this endeavour.
