=== Principles of the program ===
 +
# Locating the teacher at the centre of the effort and supporting decentralized efforts by schools and communities, rather than a centralized one-size-fits-all program. 
 +
# Exploring multiple options to provide learning opportunities to students, beyond only 'digital education'
 +
# Going beyond syllabi and textbook confines, to explore education in the context of an unprecedented pandemic, whose impact will stay for decades. This exploration is needed in line with the aims of education, to build concerned and capable citizens.
 +
# Adequately resourcing schools and teachers to be able to respond to the challenges
