About 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?
Core Values For Butterfly Fields
We are Obsessed with Making a difference
Every one in Butterfly Fields (BFFian), keeps the child at the center of all activities. We work vigorously to make every learning Experience:
Engaging for the child.
We persevere to earn and keep the teachers’ & parents’ trust
We own it up & will never pass the buck
Every BFFian works with Ownership and accountability and with Empathy. We think long term and do Not sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. We act on behalf of the entire organization, beyond just our own team, department or individual self. We never say “that’s not my job”.
For us Actions speak Louder than Words
We do not value passive bystanders / onlookers or people who indulge in Blame game. Speed matters & mistakes are okay; calculated risk taking is valued more than being indecisive.
We Do Not follow the herd: “We Disagree and say so but once a decision is taken, We Commit 100%”
A BFFian is expected to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. We should have conviction and should be persistent. We do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. But, once a decision is taken, we commit 100%.
We Deliver Results
We focus on key inputs and deliver outcomes with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, we rise to the occasion and never settle for less.
