Prajayatna is a development initiative working to improve the quality of education in public schools. From a systems perspective, this initiative attempts to address quality in Education through facilitating capabilities based learning paradigm in Government schools with the active involvement of the local communities, teachers, local elected representatives Panchayati Raj structures, and the Education Bureaucracy ensuring both-better management of the schools and better delivery of quality education from these schools.

Prajayatna has been working for more than 15 years in bringing about a systemic change in the functioning of the education system and thereby ensure quality education to all children.

Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Prajayatna continues its ‘movement’ with the support of a large well-wisher base, committed volunteers, individuals, and organisations who believe in what they do. Even during the last year, when the COVID pandemic forced the shut down of community centers and schools for their children, they persevered and created a remote-learning prpgram to help children continue their learning from homes. They conceptualized, created the curriculum and delivered it across all our sites at-scale. This is the reason that a lot of our funders from previous years, and new ones came onboard to support them in trying times to help them continue their mission - to educate, to create a self-aware better tomorrow.
