Preparing India’s future

Education

What the sector needs

With one out of every 5 children in the world from India, it is important their learning challenges be addressed through resilient program design and execution, working closely with local government and communities.

1

Providing quality education is a fundamental social initiative and is key to realizing employment opportunities, eradicating poverty, addressing health issues and gender inequality.

2

To help implement Government of India’s New Education Policy that has laid down the framework to address ‘learning poverty’ and the rise in dropout rates which is impacting girls more than boys.

3

With approximately 82 weeks of closure, the pandemic has exacerbated the existing inequities impacting India’s 242 million children in 1.5 million schools.

What we do

AIF works to ensure that children get equal opportunity and access to quality education with improved learning outcomes. The educational programs provide grade-appropriate learning, skills, technical dexterity, and information through:

  • Building digital capabilities
  • STEM adaptation techniques
  • Learning enrichment programs addressing learning losses
  • Fostering mental health and readiness in children

AIF achieves these objectives through two flagship programs:

  • Learning and Migration Program (LAMP) which addresses learning loss and access to quality education for children at risk of seasonal distress migration
  • Digital Equalizer (DE) which is designed to bridge the digital divide for students
