Teach For India
with intellectual, human, and financial resources to eliminate educational inequity in India.
the education crisis

The education crisis in India runs wide, and deep. 97 million children living in India – one in five – are estimated to be multidimensionally poor. 75% of students are falling behind by grade 3, and 56% of grade 5 students cannot read a grade two text. A student in India who has lost a year of learning may only be able to bridge their learning in 9 years.

Our ability to equip and empower these current and future citizens for a dynamic 21st century will shape the security, harmony, and prosperity of the largest democracy on our planet. We need to act now.
