Who We Are
We bring together donors, international organizations, civil society, including youth and teacher organizations, the private sector, and private foundations to transform education systems so that all children, especially those who are marginalized by poverty, displacement, or disability, can get a quality education.

We support the places with the greatest need: those with high numbers of out-of-school children and weak school completion rates. We focus on reaching the children who are most marginalized and vulnerable, including girls, children with disabilities, and those who live in poverty characterized by extreme poverty or conflict.
Our unique model has helped many places significant progress in improving access, learning, and equity, and achieve better outcomes for hundreds of hundreds of boys and girls.
We strives to achieve the elimination of child poverty in India. We work to provide evidence-based research about the causes and effects of poverty on children and their families, and to inform the public, policy makers, media and politicians of the changes to policy needed to reduce child poverty.
