Pratham Means "First"




I have been looking at so many amazing charities recently that help to bring food and water to third world children. A common theme that I found is that these essential basics are often linked to enabling kids to stay in school and learn because it is widely accepted that education is the link to breaking the cycle of poverty.

Pratham is an Indian NGO that addresses improvements in accessing quality education for many underprivileged children. They use innovative methodologies and have created incredible scale during the past 19 years. Although they are highly recognized by well-respected foundations and educational organizations, very few people have heard of them.

Pratham USA as started a Facebook Like campaign on India’s Independence Day that talks about the link between education and poverty. There is a fantastic video that moved me and I hope it moves you.
