It is a non-funded, not-for-profit social enterprise. Jodo Gyan is an organization working to find workable solutions to the problems in classroom practices. Since 1998 they have worked closely with students, teachers, teacher-educators and parents, particularly in mathematics and science education, to introduce innovative methods through which children will understand and enjoy what they are being taught.
