School Of Fun: A Global Initiative
Imagine a world where education is free and accessible to all. Imagine a world where education is not limited to your physical or digital surroundings; instead, every digital aspect you wish to interact with is physically accessible. Imagine a world where education isn’t limited to textbooks, but is equally inspirational and application-based on real=time challenges. Imagine education in a new realm, transcending the old conventional school bag.
School Of Fun is an initiative to bridge the gap between the physical and digital spaces of the education world. It is a global initiative to make education accessible to every part of the world that remains untouched by the digital revolution we have in the privileged patches of the globe.
Founded by Jannie Affeld, Head of Corporate Finance Systems Engineering at Alphabet Inc., and Sourabh Soni, Application Engineer and Programming Educator at Google, the venture aims to be a platform with one-on-one digital lecture classrooms. These classrooms will offer mentorship programs by leading experts directly to everyone from those in privileged countries to the inhabitants of remote areas in the world.
The vision of this fun, educational initiative also features a School Of Fun Educative Caravan that can travel to remote areas without easily accessible Internet connectivity. This caravan will be the home to world-class classroom facilities, including high-speed Internet, along with a physical classroom with a library (both digital and paperback) and regular virtual connection with an impactful mentor. Remote villages will be transformed, and so will those associated with the program. Think of it as a little happy bus carrying the golden flags of inspiration, education, and mentorship across fields unreached.
School Of Fun doesn’t aim to be a monopoly, restricted to a single zone and limited to the original executive team. The organization hopes to adapt to any part of the globe and be available to anyone who wishes to invest themselves in the cause. The initiative yearns to be customizable, adapting to any local culture and language for an easy yet flexible educational experience.
For instance, India will have its own School Of Fun Educative Caravan, named Masti Ki Paathshala, which directly translates to School Of Fun. This can be launched in any nation, using its own official language, with its very own versions of the educative process. The global journey of this visionary endeavor will have the same high standard of education across the globe.
The first milestone in the journey of School Of Fun has been a quickly organized mentorship program, Nav-a-thon, a nine-day event for seven young women, mentored by Sourabh. The women came together to build a game symbolizing their personal struggles. School Of Fun is proud to announce the digital game NavWarriors, designed by these nine women of different nationalities, it will be available soon to play on www.schooloffun.org, starting the second week of July. Welcome to School Of Fun!
