About The Organization

Katha is a grassroots Indian non-profit organization that for the last 28 years has been empowering children to become agents of change through quality education, teacher training, and world-class book publishing. Katha works in the slums of New Delhi to ensure that children from underprivileged backgrounds are able to receive the quality of education needed to build a better future for themselves and their families.

We have an innovative, proven education model that makes learning a fun, creative experience for children and teachers alike. Katha’s programs have reached over 9, 00,000 underserved children from 423 Municipal Corporation Schools (MCD) and over 600 slum communities across Delhi. Katha has embarked on a major scale up plan to spread its innovative model to reach children across India and abroad.

Started in 1988 with a magazine for children from the underserved communities, Katha’s work spans the literacy to literature continuum. By seamlessly connecting grassroots work in education and urban resurgence, Katha brings children living in poverty into reading and quality education. Over the past 28 years, through its many programmes, Katha has helped over 900,000 children help themselves out of poverty, trained 21,500 of them in IT and taught 90,000 women in income-generation and social activism skills.

On the other end of the creative spectrum is Katha publishing programme that bolsters the reading initiative by producing books that create space for culturally distinctive literature and celebrate the glorious polyphonous multiplicity that is India. With over 400 published titles, including quality translations of fiction for adults and children in 21 Indian and 12 foreign languages Katha has ignited the minds of over 80,00,000 children till date. With every carefully chosen and published title, quality has been the single major idea that drives Katha. We have constantly reinvented ourselves to stay focused on our mission, re-engineered our work to deliver the maximum impact!
