About Pratham

Pratham Education Foundation is an innovative learning organization created to improve the quality of education in India. Focusing on high-quality, low-cost, and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system, Pratham Institute (PACE) was formed in 2008 to train youth from economically disadvantaged backgrounds in the age group of18-35 years. Pratham Institute provides them with employable skill sets, coupled with access to employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. Our trainees are from both rural and urban areas, and we focus on the most underprivileged and hard to access sections of society, in terms of both skills taught (like women-oriented and short-term courses) and regions and sections targeted for mobilization (like tribal and violence affected areas). Pratham Institute currently has 105 centers (including 77 residential centers) across 16 states in India, with an annual training capacity of 50,000 youth. In 2016-17 we’ve trained nearly 22,000 youth in industry-specific skills and are aiming to train 25,000 youth in the year 2017-18. Pratham Institute imparts most of its training in industry-specific entry level skills in sectors that employ a large number of disadvantaged youth – hospitality, automotive, healthcare, beauty and wellness, electrical and construction (including welding and plumbing). Our courses are between 2 and 3 months in duration and teach basic English, computer literacy, digital literacy and life skills in addition to the industry specific component.
