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.


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.
