Welcome to our fifth edition of newsletter. As ever , It will be our endeavor to use this as our channel (minimally but optimally) for letting you know what's happening at our end without overloading you with too much information.
In this edition, we will look ahead at 2021 and embrace it with our full heart (in spite of the microbe still around). We will have 28 of our orbit shifters give their first public exams. We will also be experimenting with new cities and even rural locations. Our goal is to ensure our families and students get a fair and leveled ground to play this game called - "Life".
Meanwhile we hope you and your loved ones are safe and comfortable. Please do stay indoors as much as you can. The newer wave is there for real but lets not allow fear to infect us!
Here is a glimpse into other developments that's happening at our end
SOF's enters the Rural fields
We conducted a small rural collaborative experiment with Daya Charitable Society - an NGO in Kerala in Jan 2021. The goal was to test the possibility of delivering our Career Awareness and Personality Development modules remotely and checking its effectiveness. Early results came out promising.
We have closed on our hiring and we will soon be launching our first rural center with 80-100 students and family benefiting from our first rural intervention!

Meet our Staff
Meet Pallavi Acharya who takes care of our Kadugudi unit. A master in computer application and also Bachelor in Elementary Education, Pallavi brings with her a razor sharp focus on teaching her students Maths and Science. She lives in Kadugudi with her husband and child and relentlessly attempts her best to bring the best out of every SOF student she is asked to deal with.
Democratizing Teaching/Learning Aid
Proposal discussions in progress with Toppr for getting subsidized options for our centers. The intent is to provide all our students access to quality video and learning material so they get a fair playing ground as other urban well to do students. Why should our children be left behind. Follow-up demo’s planned to evaluate and finalize proposals for 2021-22
