Welcome To Butterfly Fields

Butterfly Fields was founded by people with a passion to create more ‘doers’ in India. They felt that the Indian educational system, with its emphasis on theory and exams, was taking the joy out of learning and more importantly, its very purpose. As with many great journeys, Butterfly Fields began its journey by asking some simple questions that challenged the status quo:

  • Shouldn’t education be more about understanding and less about marks?
  • Shouldn’t schools be training children in improving intelligence rather than memory?
  • Shouldn’t learning be about solving real-life problems rather than answering some questions in a paper?
