LexQuest Foundation is a non-partisan non-profit organization that takes evidence-based, equity-driven measures towards building peaceful and stable collective futures. With a belief in education’s powerful ability to cause profound change, our multifarious efforts primarily aim to safeguard and uphold the universal right to education. We work in close partnerships with educators, legislators, policymakers, and advocates to develop and establish just and resilient systems that facilitate better access to quality education for marginalized groups.
Our vision of a new social contract for education entails creating more conducive learning environments that benefit both students and teachers while promoting means of sustainable coexistence with the ecosystem. To that end, in securing social, economic, and environmental justice, our interdisciplinary and intersectional initiatives engage with grassroots-level problems in urban, semi-urban, and rural settings.
Vision: Enabling individuals to employ education for resolving deep-rooted local and global challenges.
(Our motivation/reason: As a shared societal endeavor, education builds common purposes and enables individuals and communities to flourish together. In this form, education serves as a common good- a state of shared well-being that is chosen and achieved together.)
Mission: Ensuring universal access to quality education.
(Our motivation/reason: The Right to quality education must encompass the right to information, culture, and science as well as the right to access and contribute to the knowledge commons, the collective knowledge resources of humanity that have been accumulated over generations and are continuously transforming).
