|Details of Education programme (s)
Peepul (Regd. as Absolute Return for Kids) is an education-focused non-profit that aims to transform children’s lives through quality education. Formerly known as Ark India, we have been operating in the country since 2010, and have partnered with government and non-government agencies to execute high impact education programmes, focused on raising the standard and improving learning levels in government schools. We want to create a network of high performing fee-free schools, catering to the most disadvantaged communities, as well as develop a replicable and scalable model and curriculum, that can be used by the government to bring about improvements and systemic reform in the education system. We want to share our best practices in teaching and learning outside of our own schools to the wider system through our work in areas such as teacher training and capacity building. Through our work, we want to show the power of effective public-private partnerships in improving education quality, especially for the most disadvantaged children that often fall through the cracks.
