Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    Pratham’s mission is to ensure “Every Child in School and Learning Well ”.
    The organization is founded on the firm belief that education is the fundamental right of every child and no child should be deprived of this basic right simply because he/she does not have access to it or does not have the resources to realize his/her dreams.

    The principal focus of our programs is to ensure quantum and visible improvement in the enrolment and learning levels of the underprivileged children.

    The key principles which have guided the evolution of our programs over the years are:
    - Generating a societal mission is a necessary means of achieving the broad goal of universal pre-school and primary school education.
    - Creating an impact on a large scale is essential to bring about a perceptible change.
    - Creating low cost models is critical to ensure sustainability and replicability of interventions.

    • To ensure that all our programmes are measurable, scale-able and driven from within the community.
    • Pratham’s programs are all driven by our simple, singular mission of "Every child in school and learning well."
