Rupantar Transforming Education

About Rupantar

Education is one of the most powerful means for bringing about change in the individual, the society and the country. In India, an innovative initiative is needed, which can successfully bring together four elements—impact with large numbers, high quality & excellence, higher values and cost effectiveness. 


“Organisations, however vast and complex they may be, can achieve nothing permanent unless a new force, more divine and all-powerful, expresses itself through a perfected human instrument.” – The Mother

Launched by Sri Aurobindo Society in 2015, Rupantar ( is a programme to transform the quality of education in government schools across the country, by harnessing the power of the people and existing resources. No new systems, no more layers of processes. This is a movement to create an ecosystem where everyone works together in synergy to harness the power of the people and existing resources.

With several innovative projects to empower teachers, gear up education officers, support students and increase parents’ and community’s participation, Rupantar is fast on its way to become the world’s largest programme to improve state education systems.
