It is our goal to ensure access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities. The education vertical in Parivartan works through a child-centric pedagogy. It initiates innovative teaching methods, procurement of latest and apt learning material and technology to improve learning levels of children (age group 3-13).
Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Mahila Samakhya along with all other verticals at Parivartan intends to enable and empower women and ensure their equal participation in developmental processes.
