Our Approach

PEN partners with District Governments to adopt failing public schools for a period of at least 10 years. In PEN-adopted schools, we implement reforms that improve academics, and provide vital missing facilities.

We also organize co-curricular activities that develop students’ character and leadership skills, and impart IT education from primary-level.

Our interventions are continuously evaluated through a rigorous monitoring, and impact assessment mechanism.


Our Academic Focus
