We are AbleTree.
AbleTree Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to realign education to suit the preferences of the learner. Based in the beautiful Indian state of Goa, we work with individuals and groups of varied ages and capabilities. We aim to provide inclusive learning opportunities to all through vocational and skill based programs that differ from conventional methods of education.
With the changing times, education is no longer what it used to be. Education is evolving. And as educators, we aim to embrace the evolution. At AbleTree Foundation, we use today's tools and technologies to make education more accessible to more people. After all, education is for everyone.
Providing education that is constructed around the abilities of the learner.
Using education to create an inclusive learning environment for all people - young and old.
Providing alternative and vocational skills that vary from conventional methods.
Creating self-directed learning so new skills can be acquired independently.
