Education is one of the key means to reduce poverty, inequality and catalyse inherent and permanent change in one’s perspective. Understanding the multiple factors which contribute or hinder educational achievement, EdelGive adopts a multipronged approach towards the problem. Our work in education is to ensure that the children are able to access a better future. A part of our efforts are towards providing a more holistic approach to our programmes, and to achieve this, we began working with Government as a key stakeholder for maximum and sustainable impact. We currently work around 4 programs with 13 partners pan India.
I. The Collaborators for Transforming Education
Started in 2016, the Collaborators is a Public Private Partnership model to support Pragat Shikshan Maharashtra (PSM) project of Maharashtra Government. The program operates in four Special Focus Districts focusing on core areas like developing teachers for application of constructivism in the pedagogy, capacity building of supervisory machinery and strengthening review mechanism, improving learning outcomes, enrolment & retention.
II. Early Childhood Education Program
