Pratham addresses gaps in education systems with innovative, low-cost, replicable interventions that span the age spectrum. Working both directly and through government systems, these programs collectively reach millions of children and thousands of school dropouts each year. In “direct” work, a Pratham instructor works with children either in the school or in the community, whereas the “partnership” model involves Pratham teams working closely with government teams at the state, district or city level to design and implement programs. Pratham’s approach to improving learning outcomes continues to serve as a model, both within India and beyond.

Early Childhood Education

Pratham’s Early Childhood Education program works with children in the age group of 3-6 years on physical, language, cognitive and social-emotional development.

Elementary

Grounded in Pratham’s Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach, interventions with Grades 1-5 are proven effective at improving children’s reading and math learning outcomes.

Beyond Elementary

The Second Chance program provides school dropouts—especially women—with another chance at education, focusing on Grade 10 completion.

Digital Initiatives

Across age groups, Pratham leverages innovative technology so children and youth can take education into their own hands.

International Collaborations

Adaptations of the Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach address children’s low learning levels in countries around the world.

Two significant means of remote learning for a child in the last 18 months of lockdown have been his/her parents' support and a cellphone.

We take this opportunity to congratulate the Indian Women's Hockey team for their outstanding performance at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. A proud moment for us to also celebrate Pratham's 2015 English Learning program student Salima Tete who is currently a member of the Indian hockey team and hails from Badkichhapar village, Simdega block, Jharkhand. In 2015, Salima and other girls living in the hockey centre run by the district administration and supported by the state government started learning English. Under the program, which continued till 2019, young female players worked on their soft skills like introducing themselves in English in another city or foreign land and understanding the English phrases and words used during official matches. The Pratham Jharkhand team organized English sessions, group discussions and sports-related conversations with them daily at the Simdega Hockey Center. Today, four girls from the batch - Sangeeta Kumari, Beauty Dungdung, and Sushma Kumari have made their place in the Indian Junior Hockey Team and Salima Tete - Senior Hockey Team player. We thank these players for giving us a moment of pride and joy....#TokyoOlympics2020 #hockey #india #pratham #allthebest ... See MoreSee Less
