Pratham started out catering exclusively to children in urban areas, but now works on a large scale in rural areas too.
In the early years Pratham's area of work was Mumbai; now it is spread across India.
Pratham started in Mumbai in 1994 with the vision and mission of "every child in school and learning well".
In 2002, Pratham developed innovative teaching-learning methods, materials and measurement, and in 2005 pioneered a nation-wide survey of schooling and assessment of learning that has had a major impact on national and international policy domains.
Pratham India's work can be broadly divided into four verticals: Read India programme, Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children, ASER Centre and Pratham Institute.
Pratham's flagship programme is the Read India campaign, currently active in 251 rural districts across 19 states.
Pratham's urban programmes are run in communities where there is a critical need for quality education.
Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children (PCVC) targets vulnerable and out-of-school children including child labourers, street children, child beggars and rag pickers.
Since 2005 Pratham has facilitated Annual Status of Education Report, a citizens' initiative to understand the status of elementary education in India.
Pratham Institute is a new initiative focused on developing and scaling up capacity building initiatives for youth.
Pratham Books is an independent charitable trust. It publishes high quality books for children at affordable prices and in multiple Indian languages.
