We are working to transform the school education system in India to improve the learning outcomes of all children, especially from low-income communities. To achieve our goal, we provide support and partner with organizations working on innovative solutions in education, as well engage with the system to drive sustainable and positive impact. We also collaborate with other ecosystem stakeholders to build research and create effective proven tools around critical issues.
Our Impact Areas
Ensuring a strong foundation
We believe all children should attain the foundational skills of reading with meaning and basic math by class 3.
Improving Learning Outcomes
We believe in encouraging focus on student learning outcomes from parents, school owners and policy makers to improve the quality of the private school sector.
We believe that the next wave of education reform will be led by exceptional entrepreneurs and organizations working on innovative and impactful solutions. The CSF Grant Accelerator provides unrestricted start-to-scale funding to early-stage nonprofits that are filling key gaps in K-12 education for low-income communities.
Keeping Election Promises on Learning Outcomes Close, No Matter How Far
While many issues get highlighted during election season, school education often doesn’t make it to the limelight. However, given its importance to the country’s future, we examine what the two national parties have laid out in their election manifestos – and what the new government can do to improve the quality of education once it comes to power.
