Agastya International Foundation (Agastya) is a transformative educational charity engaged in sparking curiosity and nurturing creativity through hands-on science education among poor rural children and teachers. It streams its vision and mission through a variety of channels including a Creativity Lab located on a 172-acre campus near Bangalore, 70 Mobile Labs spread across 10 states in India and 30 Science Centers spread across A.P. and Karnataka. Agastya advisers and members include entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, philanthropists and teachers. To date, Agastya has directly touched (face-to-face) 5 million children and 150,000 teachers. The programs are holistically designed to spark creative-thinking and problem-solving skills, improve learning achievement, raise confidence and self-belief and expand opportunities. Agastya's educational intervention programs complement and work alongside government and other programs. An independent core group of educationists, scientists and investors leads Agastya's efforts.
