About the partnership
As part of the Philanthropy in Education Symposium series, NORRAG and IDF have launched an initiative to facilitate dialogue, research, and stakeholder collaboration for engagement of philanthropic actors in supporting the Right to Education Act (RTE) in India. NORRAG and IDF, with support from Dr. V Santhakumar (Azim Premji University), organised the first roundtable “Philanthropic and CSR support for the Right to Education Act: A Platform for discussion and research” in New Delhi, India, on 27 April 2018. Functioning as honest knowledge brokers, NORRAG and IDF aim to foster an ecosystem in India for collaboration between philanthropy and education stakeholders to develop and share knowledge on supporting RTE and elementary education.
