According to the recent National Family Health Survey (NFHS), less than 15% of students in grade 1 could read a grade-level text. Only 50.8% of students in grade 3 could read grade 1 level text. Less than 50% of children under the age of 8 years received benefits from the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS). 
These statistics show the current reality of our children.

उद्भव / Udbhav is an impact-driven intervention that provides holistic Early Childhood Development program at the school and community level. The intervention involves a comprehensive curriculum for preschool and employing parent representatives within the community to create a strong program-school-community partnership.
We work with Anganwadi, government schools, and low-income private schools.
Our intervention at schools include;
  1. Holistic curriculum focused on cognitive, physical, emotional, and social development. Yearly cost of curriculum for 100 students Rs. 1,10,000.
  2. Teacher training. Yearly cost of teacher training. Rs. 30,000.
  3. Providing necessary resources and materials to support the children effectively. Yearly cost of resources given to school. Rs. 10,000.
Our intervention at the community level involves;
  1. Creating and distributing student kits; to continue learning and practicing activities at home. Yearly cost of resources for 100 students, Rs. 4,00,000.
  2. Employing parent representatives (Mothers of students studying in the intervention school) to work with the program team and support a group of 10 families to help their children continue learning at home. They are also responsible for conducting support circles for parents to discuss and solve challenges at the community level. Yearly cost of employment for ten parent representative, Rs. 6,00,000.
  3. Training parent representatives. Yearly cost of training parent representatives, Rs. 50,000.
Udbhav started with the belief that all children deserve a quality start to life regardless of their socio-economic background. We noticed that public institutions that provide free Early Childhood Care and Education are heavily under-resourced. Quality early childhood programs are expensive (the average per child yearly cost of a private preschool in India is estimated to be around 60,000 Rs.).
So our mission became to bring a quality early childhood development program to the communities we are working with for free of cost.
To ensure that the program can continue to support the schools and the communities, we want to reach out to each one of you to help us support these children. The last two years have been challenging for these children, and we wish to support them and their families the best we can.

There are many other miscellaneous expenses such as resources for teacher training, cost of software to create student-friendly content and resource packets, stationery costs and travel expenses for distribution of kits, and travel expenses for training of parents and parent representatives.
