Going to School’s journey began with the children’s book ‘Going to School in India’—a celebration of what school can be, from going to school in a tent in the middle of a mud desert to going to school in the dark. Each story features a real school in India where children come together to learn lessons that are relevant to their lives.
Going to School in India was adapted into 10 Mini Books and
9 movies in regional languages.
The Making of Going to School in India
Lisa Heydlauff and Nitin Upadhye traveled for a year across India—by plane, train, rickshaw and climbing up mountains—to discover more than 25 inspiring stories of children going to school.
