These resources have been deployed and monitored in many rural and urban communities. With each passing year, this repository of content – videos, games, stories, and applications has grown to cater to the interests and engagement of children.
Translating videos into 14 regional languages helped us become relevant and accessible to learners in all states. Moving forward we are planning to create a mass dissemination mechanism where youth and children will get exposure to improve their creativity, collaboration, curiosity and critical thinking. In this effort to make engaging content reach learners across India, Pratham has been actively collaborating with youth-driven start-ups, content creators and interest groups.

About Learning for Life:

Pratham’s curriculum is divided into 3 major domains – Learning for School, Learning for Life and Learning for Work. Started in 2018 with a simple motive to go beyond school curriculum and encourage the innate creativity and curiosity among children in rural India, Learning for Life is a fast growing curriculum domain. It focuses on building 21st century skills, promoting physical and mental wellbeing and creating environmental consciousness among children and youth for a sustainable future. It is based on a 4Ex framework – Expose, Explore, Experiment and Exchange. This involves creating age appropriate digital content, running awareness campaigns in the community, organizing workshops, conducting various courses and activities with children and youth.

Environment Vertical
Aligned with Sustainable Development Goals, the main objective of the environment vertical is to create environmental awareness and foster behavioral change among children and youth by promoting curiosity, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity and social skills.
