About Eklavya:

Eklavya is a non-government registered society that was set up in 1982 to actively seed and develop academic programmes for curricular change in elementary education, at the micro level, and mainstream them through government and non-government agencies. From the onset, it took up the academic responsibilities of the landmark Hoshangabad Science Teaching Programme (HSTP), and developed and implemented the innovative Social Science Teaching Programme and the Primary Education Programme (PRASHIKA) in the government schools of Madhya Pradesh.

Over the past four decades, Eklavya has been engaged in various efforts to improve quality of education in government schools. Eklavya has also been working with NCERT, various SCERTs, teacher-education institutions and other stakeholders, besides being involved in community-linked initiatives. Eklavya team and resource persons worked with the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in developing the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005, syllabus and textbooks. Over the years Eklavya has also developed and published a large Corpus of education materials for all levels of school education, including a sizeable segment on children’s literature, for students, teachers and parents.

Eklavya continues to actively seed and develop academic programmes for curricular change in elementary education across the country via various field programs.
