About Us

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.

Sujata Behera is a mother from Puri district, Odisha, who is leading a mothers’ group to support their children's learning at home. Using innovative methods such as counting chapatis, she helps her child learn while doing household chores.Recently, Sujata and her son Rohit (grade 3) participated in a Pratham-facilitated mothers’ workshop. There she gained many new ideas and shared some of her own. Sujata believes that in addition to the support received from Pratham, mothers should explore new techniques on their own. She emphasised that Pratham’s ‘idea videos’, which provide teaching tips, can lead to endless possibilities with a little effort.....Do you think counting chapatis is a great teaching idea?
