Prajayatna which means the 'citizens' initiative', has been has working intensively with communities towards building the institutional capabilities of the structures such as the School Management Committees, Anganwadi level Monitoring Committees, etc. The objective is to institutionalize community ownership of the education development process and bring a systemic change in the functioning of the education system thereby ensure quality education to all children.

Major Interventions:

Quality Learning Program (QLP):  Kalikayatna, a Kannada word meaning 'a learning initiative,' stands for an overarching approach to learning. It supports and advocates any learning method and structure that works in meeting learning outcomes of children based on two premises – that it should support children's learning styles to help them build on their innate capabilities and that it should support in achieving capability based learning outcomes as determined by all concerned stakeholders. Kalikayatna is presently being implemented in two clusters in Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh each.

Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) constitute an important element and it plays a primary role in the attempt towards achieving universal education. The domain of ECCE is concerned with the children in the age group from birth to eight years and addresses the holistic development of children through a comprehensive perspective that covers nutrition, health and learning.

Education Governance: The concept seeks to address the issue of lack of quality in the public schooling system by ensuring the participation and involvement of the actual stakeholders – the community, through a decentralized approach to educational governance. The focus has been on institutionalizing this process through two main strategies:

Strengthening community-based constitutional structures, especially the Standing Committees responsible for education at the block and district levels.

Streamlining the educational planning process through the involvement of School Committees and the Panchayat Raj Structures.

The NGO also work with State level Institutions to develop and implement trainings and capability development programs for Panchayat Raj structures throughout the State.
