- Get Involved
In many villages we’ve formed informal partnerships have been formed with school principals, to allow Read India classes to take place in government schools to help students attain higher learning levels. Tamil Nadu’s complex language requires Aid India’s commitment, encouraging a focus on learning level attainment in the classroom. Aid India’s learning centers also have a special focus on science, with experiments that encourage young children to think scientifically about the world around them.
Eureka Superkidz Centers
Aid India runs these learning centers which are similar to Read India’s after school classes in 92 of the 639 BEP villages covered in Tamil Nadu. Superkidz Centers run intensively in small communities. They use paid volunteers and provide extra workbooks. AID India trains volunteers in proven accelerated learning methods. They provide materials and monitor learning outcomes closely to ensure real progress.
With several years of material development and proven innovation, Pratham-Aid India has become a resource to several NGOs in Chennai and across Tamil Nadu. In both subsidized and paying partnerships, Aid India has trained and supported 11 other education-sector NGOs and two tuition centers, providing less-experienced organizations the tools to make their work more effective—indirectly reaching over 40,000 additional children.
Early Childhood Education
Pratham also works in affiliation with Vidyarambam in Tamil Nadu, an NGO focused on early childhood education in rural contexts. Vidyarambam runs learning centers across Tamil Nadu, emphasizing pre-school literacy but also providing learning support classes for primary school students in math, reading, and English.
