JIVEM Education : Creating World Citizens Since 1983
As Steve Jobs said, it is easier to connect dots, going backwards. JIVEM Education is a result of series of transformations & multiple instances of metamorphosis. It started as a humble tuition center for board appearing students with just 3 students under a sheesham tree with minimal facilities & absolutely no assets, way back in 1983. The tuition center was called GyanKutir (Cottage of Knowledge). Unknowingly, GyanKutir found itself exactly following the Darwinian principle of life and kept adapting to changes. In 1993, GyanKutir took shape of an ultra modern English Medium School - Jhunjhunu Academy and then, never looked back. Acquiring the best of technology and people, it transformed itself into a world ready group of K-12 Schools - Jhunjhunu International Ventures for Educational Marvel (JIVEM). Later, it was constituted as a group popularly known as JIVEM Education.
