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

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.
Prioritize, Assess, Remediate, Innovate - mantra for schools as classes resume

We highlight the approach schools should now adopt to ensure children’s Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) skills don’t suffer. We also bring you insights from Mr. Vijay Kiran Anand, the first Director-General of School Education (DGSE) in Uttar Pradesh, on what measures have been adopted by the state for school reopening.
