| About Pratham
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 (www.prathamusa.org
), 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.
