ABOUT US

Central Square Foundation is a nonprofit organization working with the vision of ensuring quality school education for all children in India.

We are driven by our mission to transform the school education system towards improving the learning outcomes of children, especially from low-income communities. By building an effective and inclusive education system, we can ensure that all children get equal access to opportunities needed for leading a better life.

In order to achieve our goal, we partner with social impact organizations to bring innovative solutions in education, as well as work with the government to drive scalable, sustainable and positive impact. We also collaborate with the private sector, nonprofit organizations and other ecosystem stakeholders to build research and create effective proven tools around critical issues such as early learning, technology in education, classroom instruction methods and system governance.
