Cultivating healthy creative identities in students by fostering positive relationships.

The Out of Syllabus Project is an initiative of Project FUEL and FUEL Foundation to document, design and celebrate the wisdom of our teachers through stories of their lives and life lessons. This is enabled through a reflective process that recognises and places value on each unique life experience.

My experience has been phenomenal. I am amazed by the students. The confidence with which they are asking questions to us (teachers) is commendable.

About the innovation

What we do!

With the Out of Syllabus project, we aspire to reimagine role-models for students within academic institutions and encourage them to seek inspiration from the ones, they’ve known forever. The project aims at transforming school aisles into ‘Wisdom Corridors’ i.e., a gallery exhibiting life-lessons of teachers that students can access when feeling lost or alone.

It also focuses on enhancing immersive conversations between teachers and students by creating a safe space for them to connect. Alongside, creating a unique database of learning that can act as a repository on human interest stories and as an advice bank for budding change makers.

The emphasis on personal relationships, positive mindset and building understanding are foundational to the creative process. By allowing students the space to connect and understand their teachers and peers, they are better able to experiment and freely move through the creative process.


We begin by creating a ‘Wisdom Club’ in school. A curated set of students are coached in 21st century skills of communication, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, film making and journalism.


The student members of the ‘Wisdom Club’ work alongside award-winning designers and illustrators to create striking and informative poster prints that carry the life lessons of the teachers along with their pictures. These exhibits transform the school corridors/walls into a “Wisdom Gallery” that tells its spectators the life-stories of those teachers.

Impact & scalability

Impact & Scalability

This innovation is deeply rooted in one's characters, values, and morals. Out Of Syllabus Project utilizes life lessons as its core to unleash creativity and develop a growth mindset. The approach can move children towards seeing themselves first, reflecting on their own thinking and actions, and then others and turning it into meaningful and purposeful activities.

HundrED Academy Reviews

I think this is great because we often forget how important learning “soft” life skills are in the 21st century world. There is something beautiful and humane in this psycho-social and emotional contribution to society.

Scalability – this innovation can be reproduced anywhere on a seemingly minute budget. Impact – engaging, authentic, purposeful life-lessons are critical to holistic development.
