Our Endeavors...

Education Voucher Project

A specially designed Voucher Program under which vouchers worth Rs 4,500 per annum is given to over 200 students from economically and socially weaker section of the society. 140 of them are from a slum called Jagganathpur at Ranchi, Jharkhand and 80 students belong to a village namely Chandapada, Lodhma, Block- Karra of Khunti District, Jharkhand. They are those students who earlier were studying in a government school or were dropouts or were going to a small slum school. With vouchers from Pratigya these children took admission in better private schools of the choice of their own and their parents. The school in which they are studying now is YMCA Public School, St. Annes’s High School , Prabhat Tara School , St. Anne’s Middle School, Birsa Shiksha Niketan, Yogoda Satsang Vidyalaya etc. The Voucher Project is being run with aim to strengthen the movement of "Right to Choose School, with Right to Education" for every child of the nation irrespective of social and economic condition they hail from. Pratigya intends to include over 1000 children under this project in next 3 years and act as Policy Demonstrator for sustainable model of Quality School Education for the last mile children. This model also has the potential to solve problems regarding quality and choice in the present government education system.

You can take this movement ahead by sponsoring education of a child with Rs 450 per month.


Srijan Bachapan Project

A Supplementary Education Project for the students who are getting Education Voucher along with other students in the surrounding slum. The goal of this project is to facilitate the growth of these students, so that they can excel in their academic, personal and social life as a responsible student and an individual. The major themes on which we work on, with them are- Life skills, Social Education, Financial Education, Counseling, Art and Craft and Extra Curricular Activities. On these themes, different activities using different motivational fun games and interactive sessions are organized with the help of various Resource persons and Counselors.

Yuva Project

PRATIGYA strongly believes that the movement of "Right to Choose School, with Right to Education" can only be obtained with a strong youth movement. To sensitise them regarding the harsh reality of the system, aware them and mobilize them to become an Active & Responsible Citizen we organize several seminar, workshop and training programme on various socio-economic and political issue. The major events so far had been Debate and Discussion on "Present School System", "Am I an active Citizen?" seminar and Right to Information Workshop at various colleges in Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Dumka and Dhanbad etc.

Sucesses So Far . . .

  •   Over 200 students from a slum in Ranchi, Jharkhand and a village in Khunti , Jharkhand are studying in better Private Schools through Education Voucher

  •   About 15% of these students today are among the rank holders in their class who in all probabilities would have been drop outs

  •   Many of our students who took admission in new private schools, having dissatisfaction with their new school , changed their school in the following years. It shows the power of choice, which Education Voucher provides. Some even moved first to vernacular medium and then to English medium schools.

  •   Parents in the community now talk about Quality of Education and are demanding “Right to Choose School”

  •   We started giving Education Voucher to 40 students in 2008 and the number grew more than fivefold in the year 2012-13
