Programme Overview
Peepul embarked on a multi-year, system-wide transformation program in partnership with the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) in 2021. The objective of this program is to holistically improve the education system, aiming to provide high-quality education for all students by fostering high-performing teachers and enhancing the administrative system within the MCD.

The School Systems Transformation program is founded on a Theory of Change that asserts that through the implementation of a variety of academic, administrative, and institutional reforms, the program will enhance the learning outcomes of students in the state school system. Furthermore, the program will enhance the state's capacity to sustain and further enhance its education system following the conclusion of the program. This transformation initiative will serve as a model for education system enhancement in municipalities throughout the country.

Peepul is actively engaged in a FLN (Foundational Literacy and Numeracy) focused Development Impact Bond (DIB), which spans a 5-year period and covers two zones within the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). The project commenced with a learning year
(Academic Year 2022-23), followed by four years of outcome-based funding (Academic Year 2023-24 onwards). The project entails the systematic implementation of academic, governance, and technology reforms targeted at bolstering assessments in the Central and West zones.

Over these five years, Peepul will build the systemic understanding and competency in implementing high-quality student-learning focused assessments. This will be done by reviewing existing practices, co-creating Standard Operating Protocols for conducting highquality assessments, conducting training for teachers & officials, etc.
