Hole-in-the-Wall …

Friend and fellow blogger Fred recently put a great post on an unusual experiment carried out in India by Prof Sugata Mitra, Chief Scientist at NIIT several years ago – in one of New Delhi’s poorest areas.

Here’s how the whole thing began.

The concept has come a long way since. Today Hole-in-the-Wall Education Ltd runs Learning Centres in 23 locations across rural India (and now there is one in Cambodia too!).

A really extraordinary and heart-warming story of innovation, entrepreneurship, perseverance and human ingenuity.

Thanks for pointing it out Fred.
