The Jara Unit: An Emergency Education Solution

In 2020, 91% of the global student population, around 1.63 billion children, were out of school due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost half of these children, about 800M, did not have the technology tools they needed to continue their education.

While many children have returned back to the classroom, many of the 800M children who did not have access to distance learning still do not today… 2 years later.

Jara is a 501c3 focused on the children most impacted by the educational crisis who are often in communities with less access to electricity and the internet. These communities include post-disaster zones, low-income communities, refugee camps and more.

The education crisis is not new, but it is exacerbated - Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were approximately 262 million out of school children worldwide, 565 million who live in conflict or disaster affected countries, for whom access to education was compromised.

Every child on this planet deserves continuous access to the quality education they need to thrive.

Providing Quality Education Anytime, Anywhere

Jara has invented the Jara Unit to address this problem, a solar and crank-powered personal education device that provides children offline access to curriculum-aligned educational content. The Jara Unit can mimic a workbook, personal tutor, a textbook, a quizzing tool, and more. It is a teaching tool for teachers, and a learning solution for students.

Funds from the NFT collection will be donated to support Jara’s product and program development to support children everywhere,  starting with 10-13 year old children in Nepal, whose communities are still feeling the effects of the 2015 earthquake, where about 60% of children currently do not have access to distance learning, especially in low-internet and low-electricity communities.

About my Paintings

Reimagining the nature of folk art

My world is filled with the rich colors, flavors, and details of stories I hear, literature I read, music I listen to, sounds that fill my days, and life experiences that I come in contact with. In my paintings, these coalesce to take a visual form—sometimes they connect and make a continuum of meaning. Sometimes, they become a means for my self-expression.

In the painting series “Natura,” I’ve worked with a new style synthesized from a fusion of folk art and imaginative world art. At its base are Mother Nature and her many fascinating representations in Indian folk art. She anchors this series, probably representing my deep concern about her erosion in our race for urbanization and a sense of urgency to get reconnected with her.

They lend both solidities with their details and otherworldliness to my work. Through this layered lens, I have viewed characters, culture, emotions, and instances. They are sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, and sometimes even trippy.

I chose mediums like Acrylic on canvas, Watercolours on paper to complement the richness I wanted to bring alive. Ethnic colors add fullness. Original gold foil is the finishing touch.
