Building an eLearning platform like the one developed for School Group does not come without its own set of challenges. Learn more about the studies required for the organization to properly function.
How it Began
School Group’s inspiration was born after founder Bimal Kumar discovered the vastness of the global education gap. Learn more about how the eLearning platform grew out of the need to bridge that gap.

After completing its first two phases, School Group will be able to kick off its third phase in 2020. This phase is aimed at global expansion.
Because the second phase will have focused on test projects across the world, the School Group team will be well-versed in international operations. This will allow the organization to effectively function on a global scale. Additionally, the team will have access to an array of data points and reports collected and created during the second phase.
All told, School Group will be in a fully operational mode, allowing the organization to lead the worldwide march toward creating a better society through peer-learning.
The International Test Projects
- Starting off the test project is the second phase.

- SG setup teams in each country. These teams will be led by the country coordinator.
- The team leader will provide training to school teachers and students on how to participate in the project.
- This coordinator will select the school for the test project and make sure the project is fully functional.
- SG will collect physiological data, analytical data, and demographic data.
- At the end of the project,our team will analyze the project, and determine the challenges and how we overcame the challenges.. This data will be a reference for the future project.
- After analysis of data, we will finally move to the third phase..
The core of School Group’s second introductory phase will focus on test projects. These projects are planned for a January 2019 launch with 10 tests across six countries: Nepal, India, the United States, France, the Philippines, and Canada.
For these test projects, School Group will set up a team led by a coordinator in each country. Each team’s coordinator will determine which schools make the best fit for the test projects. The coordinators will also collaborate with school teachers and students by providing training on how to participate in the project. They’ll additionally ensure that the projects function fully throughout the test process.
During this testing phase, student data covering psychology, analytics, and demographics will be collected. The School Group team will analyze these data points, allowing the organization to properly diagnose challenges and determine the proper course to overcome those challenges. Any knowledge will then be utilized as a reference for future projects.
After the data has been fully collected and analyzed, School Group’s third phase will begin.
Building a Base
School Group is divided into three phases:
- we prepared Articles of incorporation for SG, which will be amended by the Board as necessary.
- We prepared our business model and plan.
- We develop our mission statement and vision.
- We officially accepted Gsuite, Trello, and slack as our management software.
- Developing all organizational units.
- Preparing the budget for the test project.
- Starting to locate funding.
To get up-and-running, School Group’s introductory plan is split into three phases. The first of these phases focused on the organization’s foundations.
In phase one, members of School Group’s core team prepared the organization’s Articles of Incorporation and its business model and plan. They also developed the mission statement and vision, focusing School Group on bridging the education gap via a peer-driven educational platform.
This opening phase also saw the creation of the organizational outfit that makes up School Group. To handle the expected growth of volunteers, G Suite, Trello, and Slack were picked as management software. These tools helped mold the various units within School Group, from the financial team to the IT department.
Finally, phase one incorporated the organization’s financial groundwork. These steps included preparing the budget for School Group’s pilot projects and requesting funding from companies.
Altogether, the above actions ensured a solid base for School Group’s future, building the cornerstone for a brighter education of tomorrow.
- Bimal Kumar studies all the data he collected. He discusses with a team and finally launches the company. He registers all the legalities of the company and ultimately, School Group’s official address in Texas becomes 1700 Atlas Road, Cedar Park, Texas.
- School Group is finally registered in Texas on March 29, 2018.
- Mr. Kumar puts together a small team with the help of volunteers and develops the Article of Incorporation and primary business plan.
- He contacts some teachers and, after getting some good feedback, decides to jumpstart the projects.
During his travels to schools across 30 countries, Bimal Kumar gathered numerous points of data. After analysing all this data, he felt something needed to be done. He had to launch a company with the goal of lessening the education gap between countries.
On March 29, 2018, School Group officially registered as a non-profit in the State of Texas with its headquarters at 1700 Atlas Road, Cedar Park, Texas.
Soon after registering the organization, Mr. Kumar banded together a small crew of volunteers. This team developed School Group’s Articles of Incorporation and primary business plan. With the help of the recently formed team, Mr. Kumar decided to launch the Company.
After receiving help from teachers, it was decided that School Group would begin with pilot projects in India and Nepal, kickstarting the organization’s mission to build a better world through peer learning.
- Document each country’s education system
- Study the influence of finance and politics on educational systems in each country

The birth of a global organization like School Group does not come without its own set of challenges. For the organization to function properly, documenting each country’s education system is required. Additionally, the influence of finance, politics, and education has to be studied across numerous countries.
Reports on eLearning modules that study each county’s unique challenges also need finishing. Besides this, data on why a large population of developing countries’ students are not in school must be collected.
School Group also faces the difficulty that almost all parts of the world lack collaborative-based study. In many countries, students also struggle with proper nutrition and frequent illness. There are additional problems with discrimination, ranging from a lack of inclusive teaching methods to improper education for disabled students to gender inequality for girls.
All of these challenges are ones School Group must overcome order to achieve its goal of providing the world with a top-tier eLearning program.
How it begins
School Group grew out of the need to bridge the global education gap. With some countries maintaining lackluster learning services, it is necessary to create a peer-driven educational platform that encourages student collaboration in a technologically evolving world.
The organization’s founder, Bimal Kumar, began to understand this need as a student in Nepal, where his school had no access to books or a library. After jumping at the chance to attend an American university, Mr. Kumar experienced a school with the latest technology and teaching skills. This opened his eyes to how drastic the education gap could be between two countries.
Equipped with this knowledge, he traveled to more than 30 countries around the world. During this adventure, Mr. Kumar immersed himself in each of the local education systems and learned that every country has its strengths and weaknesses in their teaching methods.
It is this realization that forms the backbone of School Group’s mission. The non-profit has been designed by leading teachers and experts for the purpose of education and skill development. A free learning platform, School Group aims to build a better world via a realistic learning model that inspires cooperation, global awareness, and social and cultural acceptance.
