OUR CEO’S STORY
The pursuit of better learning
Growing up in a small village in Nepal, Bimal Kumar, our founder, walked an hour each day to attend a school that lacked basic resources like textbooks and a library. And despite feeling trapped in a system that relied on monotonous rote learning, task completion and testing, he excelled. Eventually, he moved to the United States, graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. Intrigued by the differences between in the educations systems of his homeland and adopted country, he set out on a journey to better understand the foundation of quality learning. His travels took him to more than 30 countries, where he immersed himself in their national education systems, observing that each had its own strengths and weaknesses. He grew to believe that education could be improved with the latest technology and learning methods. This laid the groundwork for what would become School Group.
To promote quality education, skills development, and improve lives around the world
through cutting-edge peer e-learning technology and data-driven research.
WHAT WE DO
We’re building a future-focused global education network
The world of education is at a crossroads. The actions we take together right now will help create more learning opportunities today — while placing us on the path to a brighter, more successful future. Starting with our flagship pilot project in Nepal, we are currently testing our e-learning network. Eventually, our game-changing technology will be systematically rolled out in the other five countries where we are initially focusing our work — the U.S., Canada, India, New Zealand, and Pakistan — before expanding around the globe.
