Action Research for Building Resilient School Systems – Resources

This page contains all the resources developed during the course Bihar Mentorship Project. This was a school-based Action Research project operational in Bihar where we initially implemented in-school modules and later responded to school closures during Covid19 by sending regular learning-postcards to children. These resources include a variety of outputs such as a Toolkit on building resilient school-systems for education in emergency, Teaching Learning Materials like our postcards, all our research reports and a documentary.

In order to keep this space dynamic, we will keep updating this from time-to-time with the latest and relevant resources. If you have any suggestions for resources that can be added to this space, please write to us at
