Snapshot

Stage 4: Transition to Scale

While most children in India aged 6 to 14 are now enrolled in school, close to half of children in Grade 5 cannot read at a Grade 2 level. Pratham Education Foundation seeks to improve basic learning outcomes by implementing learning camps: intensive bursts of teaching and learning that have emerged as a promising strategy to improve education outcomes.

Innovation Description

Pratham is working to improve basic learning outcomes by implementing learning camps in which students are grouped by level rather than by grade. With DIV Stage 2 funding, Pratham implemented and tested different learning camp models to determine the most effective programs.
How does your innovation work?
These camps show how learning can change in a short period of time, demonstrating to parents and teachers that accelerating basic reading and arithmetic can be done without huge expenditures of resources when communities mobilize to engage in their children's learning.
