Step Up For India has developed 4 programs to address gaps in basic English education for underserved children. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that we signed with the Department of Education, Government of Karnataka, mandates the implementation of our programs in all upper-primary government schools across Karnataka.
Remedial English Accelerated Program (REAP)
An accelerated, intensive, and effective government school teacher-taught program for students who need remedial assistance in the shortest possible time. REAP is offered in conjunction with Teacher Empowerment Program (TEP).
Teacher Empowerment Program (TEP)
A program that offers support for lower-primary government school teachers to build their English capacity and to improve their use of government textbooks. TEP is offered in conjunction with REAP.
Primary English Program (PEP)
A volunteer-taught program in urban-area government schools, primarily taught by corporate, college-student, and community volunteers.
This is the digital version of PEP. It is remotely taught by

in rural government schools that lack local English speaking
volunteers but have the infrastructure.
