Make A gift

Support the positive impact Ekal has on children and their families.

Ekal's mission is india's mission.

Today, Ekal operates 56,000 one-teacher schools that provide free education to 1.5 million children all over India. But there is much more work to do, and 13.5 million children we have not yet reached.

With your help, in collaboration with our global network of philanthropists and non-profit organizations, we can achieve our goal of eradicating illiteracy in India. And with widespread literacy, the door will be open to a far better future for all of India. One where prosperity is universal, where healthy communities thrive, and where India accelerates its rise onto the world stage.

When you support Ekal, you’re supporting India’s future.

These businesses and families have made a commitment to educating every child in India through Ekal Vidyalaya. Please join the Future of India Gala in thanking them for their support.
