Our Work - Education

"Education For All" is a national level programme of Pragati Foundation, which is committed to provide basic education and healthcare to underprivileged children.India’s poverty situation is improving but problems related to poor health and sanitation, low levels of education, unemployment and malnutrition, remain.

While education is every child’s basic right, severe poverty and deprivation, population growth, war zones, and natural catastrophes are depriving many children of a world of books and learning. Poverty and illiteracy are closely linked - and with the second largest population in the world, India is home to one-third of all world poverty. While 22% of Indians fall below the poverty line, it has been estimated that more than half of the nation’s population lacks even basic literacy skills.

"Progress is what happens when impossibility yields to necessity."
