ICICI Foundation recognises the increasing value of English language proficiency for both personal and professional development. To help improve the English language skills of children in Assam, we launched the English Relay Programme, in partnership with Axom Sarba Siksha Abhijan Mission (Assam SSA), with Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited – Education & Technology Services (IL&FS-ETS) as our implementation partner.

Launched in July 2011, the English Relay Programme aimed to impact students of 100 government-run elementary schools in Kamrup district in Assam. This programme was specifically designed for students, who learn English as their second or third language and aims to strengthen the capacities of the teachers so that the students may develop basic English language proficiency.
