About Indus Action
Indus Action has a mission to enable the disadvantaged gain access to legislated rights sustainably, in India. Our first action is to create a breakthrough in inclusive education. We achieve this in collaboration with progressive state governments and a network of partner and community entrepreneurs. We are led by a world-class team and an international board.
India's Right to Education Section 12(1)(c) law mandates unaided, private schools reserve 25% of their entry grade seats to children belonging to socially or economically disadvantaged families. Essentially, due to this law, more than 11 million families now have a choice of selecting high-quality private schools across India in the next five years.
India's Right to Education law grants free access to high-quality private schools to economically and socially disadvantaged children. However, national seat fill rate is only ~15 percent. Indus Action has till 2018, enabled 90,000 students in less than 5 years, with 84% fill rate in our areas of operation. By 2020, we aim to enrol 1 million children and are well on course to achieve the goal. By saving $1500 in tuition fees, families save 12% of their annual income. This yielded $45 million savings per every year thus far. We are able to deliver this impact at a marginal cost ($3 per child). Our cost-effective model ensures impact at 0.001% of the annual budget the government spends in implementing this policy.
