Phonemic Intelligence (PI)

Phonemic Intelligence: The Future of Education Starts with Empowering the Brain

Phonemic Intelligence (PI) is a quick, 7-minute brain exercise that boosts learning, resilience, and compassion. Dr. Pillai envisions PI becoming a globally recognized educational method that enhances intelligence and fosters compassion across all ages.

PI has been integral to our educational programs for over a decade, showing remarkable results in over 250,000 children. After completing our public and private PI school programs in the US, India, and Mexico, we have embarked on a new journey and recently introduced PI to South Africa!

PI's efficacy is recognized by collaborations with state governments and research at prestigious institutions, including Harvard Medical School and Brain Science International.

Our current initiatives include:

-PI School Program South Africa: In 5 government primary schools, we support 2000 children with daily PI practice. Another nine schools are currently being trained and considering the adoption of PI into their daily curriculum.
-Hope Learning Centers: With 167 centers, we support 6,054 children in rural India in our after-school centers.
-Do PI With Me: A multilingual online community providing free PI sessions for children and parents.
Support PI’s Expansion in South Africa:

As we broaden our reach in South Africa, your donations empower children, enhancing brain function and equalizing educational opportunities. Recurring or one-time contributions of any amount make a significant difference and keep you connected with monthly updates.

Step 1: Make a donation that is comfortable for you. As little as $6 enables a child to receive PI training.
Step 2: Receive a monthly update on our global PI program.
Step 3: Encourage others to support our growth, and help us create a world filled with HoPE.
