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

Ekal's mission is india's mission.

Ekal Vidyalaya is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a targeted mission of eradicating illiteracy and bringing basic education to children across rural India. Currently, Ekal operates nearly 68,000 one-teacher schools, which provide free education to more than 1.7 million children. But, there is more work to be done, as we aim to reach a total of 100,000 villages by 2020.

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.
