As Mahatma Gandhi said – what’s really needed to make democracy function is not knowledge or facts but right education.

Therefore, with this episode, Young Turks has started a mini-series on edtech startups and put the spotlight on India’s education sector. These edtech businesses are transforming the definition of learning.

With a surge in demand for digital content in regional languages, startups today are betting big on local fare but fluency in English still continues to be an aspiration and this is where EnglishHelper comes into the picture.

Founded in 2011, EnglishHelper is helping millions speak and write better in English. It's initiative ‘Right To Read’ focuses on technology-enabled English literacy for every child and has reached out to over 4 million students across 28 states and 4 union territories.
