Building a strong foundation for children

Around 130 million school-going children in India study in primary grades. But, 7 out of 10 children have not attained the foundational literacy and numeracy (FLN) skills required for success in higher studies. As a result, they cannot advance as productive citizens of the country.

We aim to ensure the attainment of foundational learning outcomes for over half a million children by 2025.

Our Work

We are committed to NIPUN Bharat, the national mission to achieve universal foundational literacy and numeracy (FLN) for India. To that end we support low-cost private schools pan-India with two programs.

I-IGNITE

A digital program that is focused on improving FLN learning outcomes in students of grades K-3 through bite-sized lessons, diagnostic and formative assessments and needs-based support to teachers.

E-SHAALA

I commend Gaurav and his team at 321 for their passion and commitment to improving the quality of the teaching learning process. I have seen them constantly learning and innovating to ensure that there is synergy between pragmatism and creativity in their curriculum and training programs. They constantly audit their programs and make sure that all stakeholder needs are addressed.

When we began our collaboration in 2013, the mandate seemed onerous but 321 took charge by saying they will show children can learn & are learning. By designing (printing & delivering) curriculum as well as aligned in-class student resources supported by teacher training, they have done just that. They achieve their stretch goals and then begin aiming even higher!
