Vision: Every child and young person will have an equity of opportunities to open their mind toward the light of learning.

Mission: We will ensure access to education, encourage children to remain in schools and perform, provide all-round support for their physical and mental well-being, and empower them to contribute toward change.

Location: Pratigya is currently working in two districts of Jharkhand, Ranchi and Khunti.


Project Srijan Bachpan focuses on strengthening life skills in underprivileged children under 18 years of age. In this project, we try to teach children health-related issues via activities and other life skills via sports. we are working with 50 schools in Ranchi district to develop physical education literacy and life skills. Here we predominantly engage with children from classes 6 th , 7 th and 8 th.


We are working with ten schools to improve and strengthen foundational literacy and numeracy
among children of 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd standards. We are also running five Community Learning Centers
(CLCs) in Karra Block of Khunti district.

Rationale: According to the 2021 NAS report on Khunti District, 67% of third-standard students in language are at or below basic proficiency and 61% of the share the same assessment students in mathematics. If prompt action is not taken, it may force them even more into the downward spiral of fewer possibilities and dropping out. 73% of the population in the Karra block of the Khunti district is tribal, while 5% is Dalit. The communities we work in struggle with poverty, a high unemployment rate, illiteracy, starvation, and poor health. The current situation leads to low educational attainment, a variety of health issues, unsanitary practices, substance abuse, gender discrimination, and socioeconomic disadvantage.

Approach: This project works by intervening in the three pillars of the grassroots level of the school system, i.e., child, community, and administration. For children, there is direct intervention at ten government schools to attain FLN and to ensure safe spaces for children to grow. Simultaneously, there are community learning centers across five villages in the evening. In this process, we are directly working with the schoolteacher and the headmaster of the respective school. At the community level, we are working with grassroots-level government functionaries like Gram Sabha, Gram Panchayat, SMC, and Mata Samiti. We are closely working with teachers and HMs to improve classroom pedagogies, so that better learning outcomes can be achieved. Training and engaging Bal Sansad in establishing libraries and facilitating peer learning is also a part of the process.
