Educo is a charity founded in Ireland in 2006 with the aim of educating children in India out of poverty. A fully registered charitable trust in India since 2009, educo India is run by volunteers who oversee seven programmes throughout the country, which in total provide education for some 1,500 underprivileged children.

Even though literacy figures have increased in recent years, India still has the largest number of uneducated children of any country in the world – two-thirds of whom are girls. Just under 40% of the country is illiterate with 37% of all primary school children dropping out before Standard 5. Government reports indicate that some 60 million children between the ages of 6-14 do not attend school at all. Discover more about Educo with our newsletters.
