The roadmaps for the Sustainable Action for Transforming Human Capital in Education (SATH-E) Project of NITI Aayog, being undertaken in partnership with three participating States of Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha, were released on Saturday, March 17th by Shri Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, in presence of Shri Sudhir Tripathi, Chief Secretary, Jharkhand, Shri Alok Kumar, Adviser (HRD), NITI Aayog, Principal Secretaries for education, State Project Directors (SPDs), Director BCG (Seema Bansal) and Director PFEL (Malini Mallikarjun) in New Delhi. The forward-looking roadmaps for SATH-E were released at the end of the first meeting of the National Steering Group (NSG), the governing body for the project, which is chaired by the CEO of NITI Aayog.

SATH-E has been envisaged as a programme which aims to transform school education across these three states. SATH-E roadmap refers to a time-bound, goal-driven exercise that will reach its logical culmination by the end of the academic year 2020. Further, the foundations of other long-term interventions, as is found necessary by each state, would be laid during this period. The roadmap includes key findings of 6 months field study and 2.5-year transformation plan for State Education System.

SATH-E aspires to be a 'saathi', to the educational system with the student and the teacher at its centre, said Shri Amitabh Kant, underscoring the significance of this project. "The aim is to make the entire government school education system responsive, aspirational and transformational for every child."
