URGE (Unlimited Resources for Generating Excellence) Since underprivileged areas have their own limitation of resources so Pratigya has started this programme in which it intends to set up learning facilities in every far off village of Jharkhand so as to help the underdeveloped to get connected with the developed. Pratigya has set up 2 permanent URGE centers in Ranchi and Khunti and is also running movable libraries in these districts by the help of Pratham Books. Through this programme, Pratigya has been able to give access to reading materials to more than 1500 children.
Pratigya is an independent youth initiative to ensure Right to Choose School with Right to Education for each and every child and mobilize youth to action. It was started in June, 2007 by a group of committed youth who strongly believe that change is possible and it is only possible through Education. This group has been inspired by the appeal made by the former President of India Dr A P J Abdul Kalam to come forward and take the pledge to spread the light of education to every child in country. Vision-To help each child open her/his mind towards the light of learning. Mission-To mobilize the youth, to act towards ensuring the right to quality education for every child in India. We believe in moving beyond the traditional approaches and providing parents and children with choice. We aim at freeing children and India from shackles of ignorance and poverty.
