29 - Pratham

Low cost educational interventions

HQ Location: India

Now the largest educational NGO in India, Pratham was founded in 1994 to address teaching gaps in the slums of Mumbai. From those humble beginnings, the organization has expanded in scope and geographical coverage, teaching English and computer literacy, establishing libraries, publishing books and offering comprehensive learning support. Since its inception in 2007, Pratham’s flagship program, ‘Read India’ – which aims to catalyze existing resources at the village level to train teachers and harness domestic volunteers – is active in 38,000 villages, reaching over two million children in 2011 alone. Similarly, the organization’s ‘Annual Status of Education Report’ has become a crucial influence on evidence-based state policy planning.
