In 2003, Makkala Jagriti started as a safe and friendly space where children from marginalized communities could visit and engage in meaningful learning activities. Today, our unique ‘holistic development learning model’ empowers thousands of underserved children and youth across the State to maximize their learning and potential to succeed; breaking the chain of poverty, illiteracy and unemployment.

Stories of Change
We have seen great transformation take place when parents and community members are involved in shaping learning spaces for children and understand the importance of preschool education.
Breaking the language barrier for migrant children
Barnalli, a seventh grade student at Government Primary School, Somasundrapalya, is a child of migrant parents from Assam. Unable to speak the local language, Kannada, she found it difficult to adjust to school and struggled to mingle with other children.
How the education of one girl can impact generations ahead
Both of Mercy’s parents worked in the unorganised sector, who could not afford her school fees. She joined Makkala Jagriti Learning Centre at the age of 11, and always found the facilitators to be warm, welcoming and encouraging.
