The Collaboration WCM


The Collaborators is a Public Private Partnership between EdelGive, a consortium of donors and implementing organisations with the Department of School Education and Sports (DSES) started in 2016 to implement the Pragat Shaikshanik Maharashtra (PSM); a Government-prioritised movement for educational transformation in the State.

EdelGive has signed an MoU with GoM, with a clear vision to enhance the quality of elementary education (Language and Maths) across the entire State.

EdelGive is the anchor funder and brings together the four stakeholders viz. funders, government, NGOs and the community. This effort is an intrinsic part of EdelGive’s belief that solving complex social problems at a systemic level and scale requires collaboration amongst various agencies to bring about a positive change in backward areas. The coalition aims to identify and disseminate best practices to improve learning outcomes of children, that can be integrated into the government system.

The intervention focuses on three specific objectives:

  • Enhancement in learning outcomes of children resulting in transformation of schools to Pragat School.
  • Support to the education system by conducting capacity building of educational functionaries at multiple levels.
  • Improved Community Engagement

Shri. Nand Kumar (I.A.S.)

Ex. Principal Secretary (School Education), Government of Maharashtra

Taken up as a pilot intervention with the Government, EdelGive Foundation’s intention was to strengthen the existing machinery with the help of Government and other notable partners. This endeavor has led to significant improvement in not just the learning outcomes of children but has also led to improved teaching methodology, better community understanding of the importance of education and involvement of community as a whole in ensuring last mile delivery of education. Looking at the results, we feel encouraged to scale it up as much as possible.

For any type of work, one needs to be inspired. I have been inspired by the program and the work the Collaborators are doing. There have been so many Shiksha Parishad and TLM workshops organized and getting a specific mention for me and my school was really inspiring. This encouragement has helped us gain more energy towards our cause.

Mr. Rajendra Shinde

Assistant Teacher, Karjawala, Parbhani, Maharashtra

The program, Collaborators for Transforming Education has helped me in evaluating the gaps in the competencies of each child. They have guided me in the process of developing learning material as per the level of the individual student.
