There are an estimated eight million children out of school in India, many of whom are marginalised by poverty, gender, disability and caste. The Right to Education Act has been a great step towards inclusive education, but it is difficult for schools across the country to adopt a truly inclusive approach.

So far, under the Right to Education Act, it is mandatory for schools to reserve 25% of their seats for children who are disadvantaged.


Gati is a collective of organisations and schools driving inclusion. Together we are helping educators serve students effectively and allowing more students to access school.

The Challenge

Faced with the policy thrust towards inclusion, schools struggle with understanding the criteria for inclusion and implementing inclusive practices successfully. We support inclusion capacity-building with resources that help you understand the three key questions:

What is inclusion?

How inclusive is your school?

What can you do to make your school more inclusive?
