About the Program to Improve Private Pre-School Education (PIPE)
FSG launched PIPE in early 2015. This six year, multi-phase program seeks to address the fact that low-income households in India are increasingly demanding early childhood education (ECE) for their children, and are willing to pay for it, but are currently receiving extremely poor quality from the market. Recognizing the massive potential for social impact of high-quality ECE, the PIPE aims to help catalyze the scaling of affordable, high-quality, private sector ECE provision in urban India.
Phase 1 of the program was a foundational phase aimed at mapping the ecosystem for low-cost, high-quality ECE in Urban India. Phase 2, which started in November 2015, involves identifying innovative solutions, piloting them and working with organizations that can deliver such solutions at scale. Phase 3 will focus on scale delivery including the addressing of ecosystem scale barriers. We are looking to expand the team in Phase 2 as the program moves into piloting and implementation.
The program is currently supported by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Omidyar Network, UBS Optimus Foundation, Central Square Foundation, and the Douglas B. Marshall Jr. Family Foundation.
