Every Child in School and Learning Well
More than 50% of India's fifth graders cannot read a second-grade text. You can change that.
India accounts for 28% of the world's working age population. However, only 2% of its current workers have received any formal training.
A Second Chance
Almost 80% of India's girls drop out of school before reaching grade 8. We afford dropouts a safe, supportive learning environment so they can complete their secondary school education.
Of the 26 million Indian children who enter first grade each year, half will reach fifth grade unable to read or write. Founded in partnership with UNICEF and the Mumbai Municipal Corporation, Pratham has worked for over two decades to address this education crisis.
Of the 250 million children worldwide who cannot read or write, two-fifths live in India, where for a quarter-century Pratham has been working to alleviate this crisis.
We develop low-cost solutions to improve the quality of learning and work with governments to take them to scale.
Our community-driven approach has engaged hundreds of thousands of volunteers and has affected the lives of 75 million Indian children.
