The remarkable story of the Agastya International Foundation

The Agastya International Foundation is an Indian education trust and non-profit organization based in Bangalore, India, whose mission is to spark curiosity, nurture creativity and build confidence among economically disadvantaged children and teachers in India.  A team of scientists, educators, and entrepreneurs led by Ramji Raghavan founded Agastya in 1999 and has since become one of the most remarkable social enterprise stories in the world.

This book tells that story of Agastya’s remarkable origins, the individuals who devoted their resources and efforts to make a difference, the vision and beliefs behind Agastya, and the many children who have benefitted from Agastya’s renowned experiments in educational innovation and project-based learning programs. The Moving of Mountains is, moreover, the story of an extraordinary and generous dream of a group of people who wanted to make available a path of discovery for everyone.
