Hello! We’re QShala.

 

QShala works with children from Grades 1-9 to help them acquire a mindset of lifelong learning.

 

Started in 2014, QShala (then known as Quizshala) has always been rooted in the process of quizzing – general awareness, connecting the dots and making informed guesses – to help children build a clearer, deeper understanding of the world around them. Initially conceived as a classroom based learning module, the program quickly grew to become more than that. Elements like story-telling, field trips and other fun activities quickly found their place in the program, which directly led to QShala engaging with over a 1000 happy, enthusiastic kids each week across the country. 

 

Today, QShala has moved beyond the 4 walls of a school classroom. Now, you can find us wherever you are - from your apartment complex to your mobile phone!  

 

Come join us as we celebrate questions, quests and curiosity!

 

Why we do what we do

 

The 21st Century is the Age of Information, where the amount of information being created and made available across the world is increasing exponentially. And yet, it seems the more information we have, the less we think about the how’s and why’s of what we know.  

 

Children, in particular, have an impossible number of why’s and how’s through which they make sense of the world. This innate curiosity is slowly lost as children (and parents) fall into habits of rote learning and use exam performance as an indicator of progress. QShala hopes to stem this and keeps the spirit of curiosity and lifelong learning alive.  

 

We see asking questions as a way of building context and connections in the world that surrounds us. Our program uses questions along with comprehension, context building, listening, storytelling and many more activities to help kids construct a framework of how to think. Our focus isn’t on what kids know, but on teaching them to see how and why what they know come together to form a comprehensive world view. In our world, every child gets the opportunity to question, be heard and be answered.

 

Our Story

 

Sachin & Raghav, our founders, were bitten by the curiosity bug at a very early age. Sachin, who had a surprise win at a school quiz at the age of 10, found that he liked the experience so much that he went on to become a competitive quizzer with national & international quiz titles under his belt. Raghav’s dinner time conversations with his father on everything from current affairs to technology, sowed the seeds of his lifelong quest to learn. For him too, this curiosity led naturally to the world of quizzing.

 

The paths of the two quizzers crossed while at law school in Pune. There, while learning legal-ese, they found that they could help children develop their own sense of curiosity and come to love quizzing as much as they do. While having immense fun interacting with them, Sachin & Raghav also realized that through quizzing, they were enabling children to learn how to think- a skill that would hold good through school and life. 

 

From this thought came Walnut Knowledge Solutions, the parent company of QShala. At Walnut, Sachin, Raghav & their team have set over 300 quizzes for kids, corporates and others (they hold a record for conducting quizzes on 6 continents – including Antartica!) while also running the QShala program. Despite these achievements, Sachin & Raghav maintain that their greatest satisfaction as quizzers and founders, comes from children thinking out of the box and stumping them with novel ideas.
