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

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

Gati Program


The Gati Program is a consortium led by Atma to support schools adopt and implement inclusive policies and practices.

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?
