The Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children (PCVC) was born in April 2001 to reach out to the most vulnerable, unreached children. The idea was to withdraw them from their exploitative conditions and ensure their proper rehabilitation in family, school and society.

Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative has been working since 1994 with the mission of “Every Child in School and Learning well” focusing on making quality education accessible to all children. Pratham managed to mainstream many children into school and ensure that the quality of learning improves, however some vulnerable children (like child labourers, ragpickers and street children...) remained difficult to access and were still out of the mainstream education net.

In April 2001 was born the Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children (PCVC) with its Outreach Program to reach out to these most vulnerable, unreached children. The idea was to withdraw them from their exploitative conditions and ensure their proper rehabilitation in family, school and society.
