Nurturing Children’s Cognitive and Socio-emotional Development in India
The early years (0 to 6 years) are the most extraordinary period of growth and development in a child’s lifetime. Dost Education understands the urgency of providing quality education during the primitive stage of a child’s life. By using mobile technology, research-backed curriculum, machine learning, and behavior science, low-literacy parents in India can now easily support their child’s cognitive and socio-emotional development.
Team4Tech helps Dost accelerate their Impact
Team4Tech has partnered with Dost Education in India since 2019 to help them scale their early learning programs to families across India. In February 2022, 70 employees from Adobe’s Bangalore and Noida offices used the human-centered design process to prototype ways for Dost to expand their digital presence.
During this project, 16 Adobe Team4Tech volunteers worked with Dost to refine those ideas into working solutions. Adobe volunteers helped support three key objectives: managing up to 60,000 voicemails of user feedback to gain insights for product and operational improvements, reviewing the policy landscape as it relates to Dost’s work with the goal of engaging in government and UNICEF partnerships to scale their reach up to 2 million families, and organizing educational content into a multilingual open-source library to make it accessible to caregivers, other nonprofits, and schools around the world.
This project impacts Dost’s 130,000 current parent and caregiver beneficiaries reached through Dost phonecasts. The refined processes and digital platforms suggested by the Adobe volunteer teams will accelerate Dost’s impact towards a projected 2 million new members through a partnership with UNICEF.
