E&H Foundation is working to provide quality education and healthcare to underprivileged children with special focus on Uttar Pradesh.
Work and Achievements
Since its inception in 2012, E&H Foundation is providing quality education to 13000 underprivileged children from class 1-3 in Farrukhabad, Lucknow, and Kanpur by supporting two models. More than 80% children in these classes are first generation learners and independent assessments show, children receiving education through these models score 100-150% higher marks compared to government schools and almost comparable to India’s best CBSE schools at 1/3rd of the average cost of government schools, creating huge scaling up potential.
E&H Foundation is focused on quality education because Pratham’s Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2016 shows that in UP government schools almost 76% of class 5 children cannot read class 2 Hindi textbook and approximately 75% of class 8 children cannot do simple division.
E&H Foundation’s programmes have demonstrated huge impact on the ground: High learning levels, increased enrolment of girls (more than 55%), better attendance, low dropout rate, confident and joyous children. The Foundation is also running a pilot programme providing quality education to children from class 4-6 in Farrukhabad.
E&H Foundation has set up strong and transparent financial and governance practices and has constant support from its board of Trustees and advisory members, who have committed to fund all overhead costs indefinitely, thus ensuring all donations go directly towards the programme.
E&H Foundation now aims to reach 100,000 children in next 5 years by expanding to more districts in Uttar Pradesh.
