      The Center for Learning Resources (CLR) is a non-profit organization

      education of disadvantaged children.

      Established in 1984, CLR has been providing technical support to
      government agencies and NGOs running pre-primary centers, elementary
      schools and non-formal education programs for out-of-school and
      working children. CLR also works towards raising public awareness
      about the educational needs of disadvantaged children and their right
      to a good education.

      Zakiya Kurrien has her Masters in Education from Smith College, MA
      and has been professionally involved in the field of education for
      over 30 years. She has authored books, designed training packages and
      instructional materials for early childhood, primary and non-formal
      education that has been translated into several languages. Ms.
      Kurrien has served on various state and national committees on
      education.

      John Kurrien has done his PhD in Education from the University of
      Wisconsin, Madison. He has been involved in various aspects of
      education since his return to India in 1976. Dr. Kurrien has written
      extensively on elementary education and the education of girls in
      India as well as served on several national and state committees.

      Dr. John and Zakiya Kurrien are co-founders of CLR and will be
