Katha is an award-winning "profit-for-all" registered voluntary organization. Started in 1988 by a single volunteer, we are today, 35 years later, a fun-loving Katha Family, working across India.
In Tamil Nadu, our flagship initiative is with children of the Adi Dravidar, Adivasi, Dalit and Muslim communities of Tiruvallur District.
The Bhim!Unbuk Way of Teaching respects our children, and teaching them the way they want to learn. They learn from their own cultureal knowledge, from "Human Books" and stories written by children, and adults who love fantasy and making children laugh!
The 300 Million Citizens' Clallenge
India has 300 million children in schools today. 50% of our schoolgoing children cannot read to save their lives.
The 300 Million Citizens' Challenge is a national programme. It works with children from underserved communities, with many implementing partners, across India. (learn.katha.org)
Our work with India's First Children, in Tamil Nadu is an extension of the 300 Million Challenge.
Working with fabulous partners, we reach quality to the last mile!
