Government Tie Ups
Pratham collaborated with the government of Madhya Pradesh in 2005 to implement 'Learn to Read' programme across the state. Government teachers were trained by Pratham staff , virtually in all districts across the state, reaching out to many more children than would be possible through direct teaching methods. 

In 2013, Pratham again collaborated with the government through two parallel programmes targeting students in years 3 & 4 to improve learning levels.
