Community Development

Education is a fundamental social initiative, a human right which has a cascading impact on numerous other aspects such as poverty, health, gender inequality and human rights.  Quality education ensures growth in social, economic and civic dimensions impacting collective consciousness of future generations.

With the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005, the Government of India has laid down the foundation for a great change within the educational system, and the Right to Education Act, 2009 is Government’s tool to ensure a physical framework for implementation of NCF. 

Poor education, absentee teachers or unplanned curricula is tantamount to no education at all hence HPPI is dedicated to working with government and state agencies to ensure that children and youth get equal opportunity and access to quality Education along with improved learning outcomes. 

HPPI’s educational programmes aim to provide knowledge, skills, techniques and information which enables people to know their rights and reach their full potential. It also breaks the cycle of poverty and closes the gender gap in basic education.

HPPI implements 6 educational programmes, namely – The Necessary Teacher Training Programme (NeTT), Prarambh Teacher Training, Academy for Working Children (AWC), The Kadam Step Up Programme, Girls Bridge Education and Women’s Literacy Training.
