A large percentage of India’s urban poor live in slum communities which lack even the most basic educational infrastructure. Millions of kids in these communities have no access to education because there are no schools in the slums. Illiteracy, poverty, large families, hunger and exploitation are a way of life.


By targeting kids at an early age, Pratham ensures that they have a head start in life by preparing them for school when they get older.


Moreover, Pratham trains thousands of young women from the slums to deliver its educational programs, thus ensuring that they have gainful employment and do not fall victim to exploitation and abuse.
