Story

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
Our mission is 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 the shackles of ignorance and poverty.

HOW WE DO
1. By Providing Access to Education
Education Voucher Programme: Under this programme, we support a disadvantaged child to get a quality education in a school, so as to imbibe in him/her the basics that an individual must be familiar to led his/her life in an effective manner.
RTE-25% Facilitation Programme: This programme facilitates the underprivileged families access to a good school around their nearby location, where they can let their children study and get a quality school education as per the provision of 25% reservation in private schools for children from socially –economically backward communities under Right to Education Act 2009.

2. By Imparting Life-skills Education to children.
Srijan Bachpan programme: It is a tool used to help an underprivileged child visualize the inbuilt capacities within him/her. Play way methodologies of sessions help a child understand the ethics of leading a life. This programme appraises the personality and other skills of a child so as to enable him/her to face any situations in life. This is a comprehensive regular programme with 2-3 sessions per week encompassing life-skills training pertaining to over all personality development of children. Health –hygiene-cleanliness, art-craft, financial education, understanding society & surrounding etc are some of the major thematic areas apart from various components of life skills covered under this programme.

3. By Sensitizing our Energetic Youths
Yuva programme: This programme is related to our energetic youths who have a capacity to bring about the changes in any situations. College going youths are being capped with various sort of valuable ethics so as to make them understand their responsibility towards this country and the society they are living in. This programme follows the principle of leading the ignited minds (youths) of this country into a proper defined and focused path.
