About Us
Details of Education programme (s) Pratham is an innovative learning organization created to improve the quality of education in India. As one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the country, Pratham focuses on high-quality, low-cost, and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system. Established in 1995 to provide education to children in the slums of Mumbai, Pratham has grown both in scope and geographical coverage. Pratham has been working to give children access to quality education since its inception. Its mission, ‘Every Child in School and Learning Well’, is founded on the belief that in order to establish a well-functioning system that delivers quality education, the government needs to move beyond quantitative factors such as, infrastructure, student-teacher ratio, mid-day meal etc. and focus on what an individual child is gaining from classroom instruction. Focusing on high-quality, low-cost, and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system, Pratham’s teaching learning approach for primary and upper primary grades has influenced government practices across India with many state governments adopting the approach through partnerships. Based on common principles of work, some of its leading programs are mentioned as follows: • Read India is Pratham’s flagship program working in urban and rural areas to strengthen basics of literacy and numeracy of children through innovative teaching learning techniques. • Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a citizen-led assessment of basic learning outcomes for children in the 5 to 16 age group. This assessment model has been adapted for use in several African countries and in Pakistan. • Early Childhood Education Programs are spread across the country for children in the 3 to 7 age group. With 20 years of practice and research on developmental activities, Pratham aims to develop school readiness among children in their early years. It is implemented both directly and in partnership with state governments. • Second Chance focuses on helping youth, particularly girls who have dropped out of school to complete their secondary school certification. • Pratham Institute is the vocational training arm of Pratham and works with rural and semi-urban unemployed and underemployed youth to provide them with the employability skills needed to address India’s need for skilled manpower. With more than 6000 full time and approximately a same number of part time employees, Pratham is currently active in 23 states and union territories and reaching out to more than a million children with its direct programs and 4 million children with its indirect programs every year.
