Teaching is not the mere imparting of knowledge but the cultivation of an inquiring mind.

Strategic Partner

The Larry Ellison Foundation

Reach to Teach (RTT) has been supported in its work by The Larry Ellison Foundation since 2007.  Larry Ellison Foundation is the personal philanthropic initiative of Larry Ellison, the co-founder of Oracle Corporation. In 2007,  Larry Ellison Foundation and RTT entered into a formal agreement where  Larry Ellison Foundation funds all RTT’s work. This sustained support has enabled RTT to scale up its work and it has moved from being a field level entity to one actively working alongside governments to bring in qualitative interventions at scale.  Larry Ellison Foundation continues to support RTT in its aspiration to enhance qualitative teaching and learning outcomes in government schools.

Value Proposition

Value Proposition of Reach to Teach

At Reach to Teach we believe in providing scalable solutions to advance the quality of teaching and learning outcomes. We work with our partners at a systemic level to drive policy impact at a scalable level.

Reach to Teach plans to use a robust public-private partnership (PPP) model, leveraging its existing funding and also bringing in increased private investments, to increase the outreach and quality of learning interventions. This can be achieved by working through a shared vision, engaging with core businesses to create sustainable fund flows, fostering collaboration, and helping reduce duplication of efforts and resources available with the partners. Under this model, we plan to use innovation and scale as demonstrated by the private sector and apply this to government programmes for improved outreach and impact. We will explore PPP models as well as innovative finance approaches in the form of ‘pay for results’ models and Development/Social Impact Bonds (DIBs/SIBs) for sustained fund flows.
