Our Vision

Our Vision

Education is recognised as a powerful tool for reducing poverty, unemployment and inequality and for improving health, nutrition and promoting sustained growth (World Bank, 2004). 'Yatra' means 'Journey' in Hindi. We hope to be able to provide a pathway by democratising the opportunity for quality education for some of the most impoverished children in rural India. Come join us on this Yatra!

Why Yatra

Our Vision

Why Yatra

Childhood education in India is a state-by-state arrangement. Traditionally, there has been heavy investment in the tertiary sector resulting in vast inequalities in education standards. Rajasthan state is a prime example due to the feudal social order generated over hundreds of years, geographic isolation, escalating childhood labour, resulting in poor school retention rates. Only 47% of children enrolled in year 1 reach year 8 level.
