Jas Johari – India


Jas Johari

Owner at Jungle Book


Jas, an MBA & MDIT ( from Symbiosis, Pune ) is extremely passionate about guiding children in their growth path specially in their ‘formative years’ Almost 15 years ago – she embarked on this journey and along the way, she has upgraded her skill sets & knowledge base – keeping in pace with the accelerated rate of change observed in society. Jas started her entrepreneurial journey with NIIT’s LEDA program which introduced kids to computers. Then, her innate love for reading books prompted her to start ‘JUNGLE BOOK’ – as a Library exclusively for children – in 2001 & has over 6,500 books which have benefitted thousands of children in the age group of 3-12 yrs. In 2005, she became the FIRST INDIAN to be awarded the License to teach ‘Mind Maps’ (originated by Tony Buzan ). In 2007, she qualified as the BUZAN ADVANCED LICENSED INSTRUCTOR ( again, the FIRST in India, and the ONLY one presently..) which permitted her to teach ‘Speed Reading’ & “Memory techniques” too. Being exposed to International Conferences, she realizedthat the Brain needs to be fed information in a manner quite different in the way it is presently being done in regular academics. This prompted her to introduce a variety of programs which activate the inherent strengths of the Brain. The I-Maths, Speech & Drama, FasTracKids, Art and other programs help children learn in a ‘Brain-Friendly’ manner, while having FUN !
