Striving to provide authentic learning for all


India ranks 105th amongst 128 countries in education. Despite the growth in literacy rates – 64% in 2001 to 74.04 % in 2011 as per Census 2011, women lag behind in most indicators of education and employment across the country.

As per Census 2011, Rajasthan had a literacy rate of 66.11%. At 52.12%, Rajasthan’s female literacy rate is the lowest in the country. Rajasthan’s sex ratio is also skewed.

Rural literacy rate of Rajasthan as per Census 2011 was 61.44%. The literacy rate of urban males was 87.91 % and that of urban females was 70.73%. The literacy rate of rural males was 76.16% and that of rural females was 45.8%.


Despite a lot of progress, there are various challenges in rural areas which are hampering quality education. These challenges are quality infrastructure, classroom facilities, toilets, playgrounds and even quality teachers as well. There is an issue of community participation and involvement as well.

In most of the schools, School Management Committees (SMCS) are not functioning as per the guidelines and protocols. The interactions of parents and teachers is also very limited which is impacting education badly.

Strategic Approach

We have devised multi-pronged strategies to address the critical components of education, so that learning outcomes, access to education and enabling environment can be built in among learners and community.

We are focusing on reintegration of drop out girls in schools through open schooling, developed Scholl infrastructure and learning labs where students are able to read literature and other stuff beyond school set ups.

Second Chance Education

Second Chance Education is a second chance for the drop out girls and women who could not access education due to patriarchy, gender based discriminations and structured barriers.

Program helping women to enrol for higher education and ensure to access quality scholastic support  so that the drop out members can get quality education. We have leveraged the NIOS and RSOS platform for this. SCE programs also facilitated life skilling, career counselling and vocational trainings as well.

Learning Hub Overview

Our learning lab initiative is closely aligned with #SDG 4 quality education. Learning lab brings together all stakeholders, students, teachers, parents and village administration. It helps to develop the eco system and enabling environment for building young lives.

Learning lab serves the children in community setting which helps them to access quality education and life skilling. The main objective of the learning lab is to improve the learning outcomes of the kids.

infrastructure development

The numerous studies suggested that quality infrastructure improved the retentions of the children along with teachers in schools. We aim to develop child-friendly school where the kids can learn and grow properly.

We envision schools which excite kids to come and study with interest. Based on this principles we are in mission to develop quality class rooms, play grounds, toilets along with learning aids for children
