Organization Overview

LINEglobal supports innovative cross-cultural partnerships, provides professional development opportunities, and raises global awareness by connecting educators/students/schools in the USA and India. Launched at the end of 2013, we are a volunteer-based nonprofit organization [tax-exempt in the United States under IRS section 501c3] that recognizes the imperative need to focus on India’s emerging global status and enhanced India-USA educational partnerships.

Geographic Location for Services

USA and India; online and international

Target Population

Kindergarten to Grade 12 educators in USA and India; partnerships between their students, classrooms and schools

Formal/Informal Education

Collaborative Global Projects: We are committed to shifting age-old paradigms by finding common ground to collaborate and engage with respectful reciprocity; this link between India and US-based educators transforms the ways we learn about each other, from each other, and with each other.

Educational Services

Professional Development: We travel to India and engage in authentic collaborations by meeting our counterparts in a wide range of schools there. By immersing in a learning process that incorporates professional inquiry and introspection, this collaboration also results in reflection of the incompleteness of our own ways of interpreting the world, examination of easy stereotypes and a renewed focus to engage with empathy and understanding.

Engagement with India: LINEglobal aims to refine and expand American perceptions about India. Personal relationships between our educators/schools will result in us being more cognizant of global issues and more reflective about educational practices. We use technologies to promote collaborative interactions with online global projects.

Community Events – USA and India: LINEglobal hosts lecture series with distinguished guests and organizations; organizes professional development events to forge enduring connections between educators in USA and India, and promotes global citizenship education.
