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.
What NEP 2020 says about school assessments
Improved learning is key for people to achieve their full potential, and for the country to cement its position as a global leader. Therefore, accurately measuring student learning in early years of schooling is critical to understand their learning levels, and identify the gaps and solutions in the education system.
