ASER 2018 reveals that only a quarter of the children in grade III is at the right grade level. More than half the children in grade VIII are still struggling with Division and one out of four children are leaving grade VIII without basic reading skills.
Without strong foundational skills, it is difficult for children to cope with what is expected of them in upper primary grades. The majority of the children need immediate help in acquiring foundational skills in both literacy and numeracy. In the current educational system, once students fall behind on foundational literacy and numeracy, they tend to maintain flat learning curves for years, perpetually unable to catch up. For many students, this has become a major reason for not attending school or dropping out altogether.
While efforts have been made to prioritize pre-primary and primary education as well as enrollment for all children, there is still a large learning gap for children from underprivileged backgrounds. While there have been efforts made at the policy level, there are significant gaps when it comes to implementation of the government-run initiatives
We believe that initiation to early education in India with the right environment and support enables children to grow to their full potential.
We focus on pre-school education (pre-primary education) and remedial support to bridge the learning gap and prepare children for formal school education.
We appeal to you
To support our Pre-school Education initiative - Balwadi to ensure all children in the age group of 3-6 years from marginalized communities of Delhi become school ready and enroll in the formal school system
To support our Remedial Education Program - Patang for children in the age group of 7-14 years to ensure that all children from Marginalised communities of Delhi reach their age-appropriate academic grade level and enroll/continue to complete their formal school education.
Help us raise funds for our specific needs.

Founded in 1988 by the late Mrs Vipula Kadri, over the last 35 years Vipla Foundation has relentlessly worked towards the enrichment of the lives of underprivileged children and women In the last 10 years, Vipla Foundation has reached out to over 5,20,000 beneficiaries in the areas of Early Childhood Care, Education, Inclusion, Women Empowerment through Anti Human Trafficking and skilling initiatives
The programme participants are largely children and women from communities experiencing intergeneration poverty due to meagre or limited access to education, livelihood and entitlements. Vipla Foundation recognises intersectionalites that operate and impacts access of services and resources for people on the basis of gender, caste, class and economic strata of society that makes these families and communities difficult to break the cycle of poverty, exploitation and marginalisation for generations.
Vipla Foundation works primarily with children of all ages through Early Childhood Care & Education, Prevention, Early Intervention & education of children with disabilities and helping children attain their learning level competencies. The organisation also works with women and girls from most vulnerable communities and those who are victims of sexual violence including sex trafficking and provides them with opportunities of education, employability, entrepreneurship, quality institutional care, safe return & repatriation and access to justice.
There are three core verticals in the organisation – Education, Inclusion and Anti-trafficking. The Inclusion programme includes a school for the hearing impaired and a school for the mentally disabled as well as an early intervention for those with hearing impairment, called Dhvani.
The education programme includes work on Early Childhood Education through a Balwadi programme and improved learning for children in Primary School through remedial programmes.
The Anti-Trafficking vertical works on Prevention, Protection, Prosecution and Policy. In urban pockets the Prevention programme includes skilling as a strategy and in rural pockets; the focus is on a Safe Village campaign that involves multiple stakeholders.
