Indus Action was founded to bring about a systemic change in India through policy implementation. India's complex social norms are oftentimes at odds with its collective aspirations. Overcoming such norms requires campaigns/programs that influence behaviors and mindsets. Indus Action's aspiration is to be a role model policy implementation organization that significantly moves the needle on deep societal attitudes and beliefs.
Indus Action has been campaigning since 2013-14 for raising awareness and effective implementation of Section 12(1)(c) of Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 under the project named ‘Eklavya'. Through Project Eklavya, we have been working towards the effective implementation of Right to Education (RTE) Section 12(1)(c) which provides 25% free seats to children belonging to disadvantaged and economically weaker sections in all private, unaided schools across India. According to Status of the Nation Report by IIM-A, there are over one crore opportunity seats all over India in next five years and nearly 85% of them remain vacant. After successfully supporting 7500 low-income families in 2014 and 45,000 in 2015 we plan to scale our operations and reach out to 10 lakh families in ten cities of India in 2017.
