With her vision and passion for innovation in experiential learning, Clap Global aims to launch globally as an equal education platform for all. Aarti has always believed in the power of first hand experiences. When she was 6-years-old, she met a stranger on a train called Irene during one of her father's international business trips to Switzerland. After just 5 minutes of meeting, Irene had invited Aarti's family to her home for dinner. It's a memory that has never left her. This experience laid the foundation for Clap Global in Aarti's mind. She envisioned it as a space where strangers come together and give each other a bit of their lives, through dialogue, through dance, through games - however they choose to tell it. Aarti has 15 years of experience in education and learning, as the founder of three companies creating innovative workshops for school children. "My vision for Clap Global was having children learn and grow through an adaptive education system that is full of customised human experiences. Just as Irene had helped me break down so many barriers by inviting us to her home, every time travellers enter into a classroom, it magnifies their understanding of the countries true culture" she says.
