Areas of Work

Education for All:

School Choice Campaign

School Choice Campaign (SCC) is a policy initiative to ensure that all children receive quality education of their choice.

Our work aims to reform education policy to make it more responsive to the needs of each student and give parents the choice to decide what is best for their child, whether it be a government, high-fee private or budget private school (BPS).

Removing Barriers to Livelihood:

Jeevika & Vikalp

CCS’ livelihood initiative, is geared at achieving greater livelihood freedom for the rural and urban poor, as well as promoting choice and accountability in the area of skill development for our underprivileged youth.

It aims to further public policy measures to clear the path for free enterprise by eradicating market entry and exit barriers to promote individual livelihood for street entrepreneurs.
