About the organization


The idea of Nalanda was conceived by social thinkers, management professionals and education experts, who felt that a separate institution needs to be set up to cater to the aspect of quality primary education.  Nalanda was set up in 1996.

Nalanda defines its mission to work towards providing access to quality basic education for children from underprivileged sections of society, through community mobilisation, capacity building, advocacy, support services, training and innovation.

In last two decades, Nalanda has worked as a resource centre to provide technical and academic support to various government and non-government agencies working on primary education. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Prominent donor bodies such as Tata Trust, UNICEF, ActionAid, World Vision, ChildFund India, Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, Aga Khan Foundation etc.
  • It also includes support to Bihar and UP government programs such as SSA and SCERT in Uttar Pradesh and also in strengthening of resources such as libraries or bodies such as DIET.
  • Besides this, Nalanda has worked with corporate for providing technical support to Tata Power, Janalakshmi Financial Services and Dalmia Sugar Mills social initiatives.
  • It has also been providing technical support to prominent NGOs and resource centres in various states of the country.


Its current outreach is in 3 states, 8 districts, 40 blocks, 377 Villages, 100 Government Schools and 165000 Children approximately.
