Ek Prayaas is an effort to provide a platform for learning to the underprivileged children of Kolkata. We aim to contribute towards the upliftment of their lives irrespective of caste, creed or religion.


In September 2004, what started as a disparate group of 12 children taught by two adults who had a dream is today Ek Prayaas. The school houses the entire primary section from Lower Nursery to Class 5. Ek Prayaas has achieved full attendance of learners from underprivileged homes in the primary section. There are about 200 children in the age group of 4 -14 years, belonging to the surrounding slum areas. Learning materials have been analysed and put in place as per skill requirements of each age group.

We have removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no  more impossible dreams.
