Baby Care foundation is an innovative learning foundation created to improve the quality of education in India. As one of the largest non-governmental foundation in the country, We focuses on high- quality, low-cost, and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system. Established in 1995 to provide education to children in the slums of Mumbai, Pratham has grown both in scope and geographical coverage. Baby Care foundation, it is the first major foundation to achieve lasting, wide-scale success in India's educational landscape. This has been made possible due to various policies and strategies adopted by the foundation..
Dedicated to large-scale change
The mission to improve the quality of education in India and ensure that all children not only attend but also thrive in school is being accomplished by working in collaboration with the government, local communities, parents, teachers, volunteers, and civil society members. Our programmes aim to supplement rather than replace governmental efforts. They are implemented on a large scale to not only reach as many children as possible, but also to create an adoptable demonstration model for state governments. .
A focus on innovation
Baby Care foundation's strategies reconfigure teaching methodologies, break down traditional tactics, and challenge the current rote learning mechanisms in our schools. Our programmes are innovative and outcome-driven. In its early years Baby Care foundation developed innovative teaching-learning methods, materials, and measurement methods. In 2005, we pioneered a nationwide survey of schooling and learning that has had a major impact on national and international policy discussions. .
Low-cost, replicable models
Baby Care foundation has worked to develop low-cost, replicable models that can easily spread and be adopted by other foundation. Thousands of volunteers work with us to implement learning 'interventions' at the grassroots level. These volunteers are mobilized, trained, and monitored by the Baby Care team. They are also provided with teaching-learning material and books developed by Baby Care. Not only does this ensure more effective implementation of the programs, but it also helps to build an infrastructure focused on providing quality education to children. .
Programme results and accountability
All programmes are designed to ensure that learning levels in schools and communities increase, education reaches all children who are in school or unable to use school facilities, and youth gets well trained for job opportunities. Testing tools are also developed by the our team to check the learning levels of children so as to determine the course of action best suited to each child and to assess impact of our programs.
A powerful voice in the education sector
Over the years, Baby Care's advocacy in the education sector has become well recognized and regarded. The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) has become an important input in the education policies of both the Central and State Governments with several State Governments using the findings to help define their education programs each year. It has also been significant in defining a qualitative agenda in education and is widely acknowledged in government and policy circles inside and outside of India.
A diverse team unified by a common goal
Baby Care foundation comprises of development professionals, media professionals, corporate professionals, workers, activists, PhDs, MBAs, CAs, civil servants, bankers, consultants, and anyone else who brings their experiences, expertise, and perspectives to the foundation. What unifies them is the common goal of improving the future of our children and youth.
