Manager of Content Development – Remote Position

School Group was founded in 2018, in Texas, USA by Bimal Kumar. In his earlier years, as a youth of the country of Nepal, Mr. Kumar had experienced the difficulties of having access to quality learning. He walked for an hour each day just to go to a school that lacked textbooks, had no library and trying hard to remain positive with such a monotonous education system. It was not until having the opportunity to go abroad and study in University of Texas, experiencing a school with the latest technology and teaching skills, that he was finally able to witness the big differences in the quality of education between two separate countries. Knowing this, he set out on a journey to more than 30 countries around the world immersing himself in each of their education systems, learning that every country’s system had their strengths and weaknesses in what they taught.


In recent years, eLearning has grown significantly as the latest development in education. Despite the progress, many obstacles still exist with this technological and philosophical improvement to the traditional classroom. Traditionally, eLearning platforms operate in a one-to-one virtual classroom that isolates learners from their peers. Computer literacy, technical issues, adaptability, self-motivation, and time management are just a few of the issues that traditional eLearning faces.

We believe in an open approach to sharing the systems, strategies and practices developed in School Group system which are to deliver an impact for our children, families and communities. The working is to share the best practices based on the five pillars of the school project to help us expand and spread the best practices driving schools group to an audience beyond our reach which means using not only technology but basic pen and paper and connecting back to the online system to continue the evaluation to help see the impact


We are an NPO and we aim at making our communities better by imparting education
