Pratham is an innovative learning organization created to improve the quality of education in India. Established in 1995 to provide education to children in the slums of Mumbai, Pratham has grown in both scope and scale, with programs today reaching children and youth across the country.

As one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the country, Pratham focuses on high-quality, low-cost and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system. Working  directly with children and youth as well as through large-scale collaborations with government systems, Pratham programs reach millions of lives every year. Pratham's Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach has demonstrated proven impact on children's learning outcomes and is now being adapted to contexts outside India.



Across the spectrum from Early Childhood Education to Secondary Education, our programs strive to achieve focused objectives across different segments, as defined by our understanding of existing gaps and the impact of our innovations over time.

Children in Kesapur village, Maharashtra are learning through the radio! They are listening to the 50th episode of 'Shalebaherchi Shala' (a school, outside school) - a radio program that broadcasts learning content in their language.
This program is a result of Pratham's partnership with the government of Maharashtra to use radio as a medium of sharing learning activities with the community.

Your support can ensure that children in rural and remote areas continue learning. Support today! bit.ly/35F21K2
