The Learning Space concept emerged as a supplementary creative learning program in the context of rural education in Maharashtra. From 2002 to 2005, founder Nitin Orayan lived and worked in villages in the outskirts of Mumbai where he noticed many deficiencies in the way the children were being taught. The Learning Space Foundation (LSF) Trust was established in July 2006. A Deed-Memorandum was drawn out and legalised at the Charity Commissioner’s office to support the underserved rural and tribal communities in education, health, agriculture, capacity building for local youth and women, livelihood for educated youth and other aspects pertaining to rural development.
