We hope children will never know. Join us in a mission to help India's children read.
Good education always requires good source of knowledge. Incomplete knowledge is somehow equivalent to no education, and most of the times the reason being the lack of resources. Books are the utmost resource for a child whose mind is empty like space capable of grasping anything inside it. Since underprivileged areas have their limitations, so Pratigya, have started setting up a room that would be meant for all, where anyone can get the resource he/she is looking for. Pratigya named this project as URGE (Unlimited Resources for Generating Excellence) and intends reach every far off village of Jharkhand.
We work on rural school (govt/ tribal and private- low income) transformation which includes content creation, teacher training and infrastructure development.

To establish a multi - lingual library at Pathankot (rural, current location) and also replicate such libraries across different states. These children have limited access to books, sports equipment and have no access to hobby or co curricular activities. We are currently in a small village (Nawan Pind) on NH1A where we engage with government school children (primary and middle school – till 7th standard) in play based educational programs. Reading is an important component of our activities and it is our endeavour to instil the joys of reading within our children, one book at a time.
