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.

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.
