Ekal's mission is india's mission.

Ekal Vidyalaya is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a targeted mission of eradicating illiteracy and bringing basic education to children across rural India. Currently, Ekal operates nearly 68,000 one-teacher schools, which provide free education to more than 1.7 million children. But, there is more work to be done, as we aim to reach a total of 100,000 villages by 2020.

With your help, in collaboration with our global network of philanthropists and non-profit organizations, we can achieve our goal of eradicating illiteracy in India. And with widespread literacy, the door will be open to a far better future for all of India. One where prosperity is universal, where healthy communities thrive, and where India accelerates its rise onto the world stage.
