Dear Friends,

The Pratham Austin Holiday Dinner event is coming up on December 4th at the Clay Pit. We have already received a very enthusiastic response and continue to welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about Pratham. We do, however, have some seating contraints and so urge you to register at your earliest convenience. The event committee has planned a very festive evening including cocktails, a silent auction, dinner, and live music provided by local talent Naga Valli.  Naga and her band will help us kick off the holiday season with their mix of fusion and Bollywood music.


If possible, please check if your company has a corporate matching program for employee contributions to non-profit organizations. We can take advantage of this program to maximize the funds raised for this great cause.


See you at the Pratham Holiday Dinner Event on December 4th.

Pratham seeks to improve the quality of education in India and to ensure that all children in India are not only attending but thriving in school.  Using very low-cost and scalable methods, Pratham has emerged as one of the world's largest non-profit organizations in the field of primary education.  Today, Pratham's direct urban programs, including pre-schools, community libraries and remedial learning programs reach hundreds of thousands of children every year.  In 2007, with the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Pratham launched the Read India campaign, an innovative, low-cost effort to reach the 100 million children in India who cannot read, write or do basic math.   

With an annual budget of less than $15 million, Pratham works in collaboration with the government, local communities, parents, teachers and volunteers across the country to achieve its mission. Pratham USA (, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a four-star rating (the highest possible) from Charity Navigator, accepts tax deductible contributions from U.S. donors.
