About Us

Central Square Foundation (CSF) is a non-profit organisation, working towards its vision of ensuring quality school education for all children in India. Since 2012, CSF has been working in partnership with central and state governments, other non-profit organisations and ecosystem stakeholders to improve the learning outcomes of children from low-income communities. CSF's approach across FLN (Foundational Literacy & Numeracy), ECE (Early Childhood Education), EdTech and School Governance focuses on solutions that are scalable, sustainable and effective. Our system reform approach covers the spectrum from Policy and Innovation to Practice at Scale, for sustained student learning improvements.
