Will you celebrate with me? Every birthday, our portfolio company, Sava360, supports social causes dear to us: gender equality, sustainability, children education. This year, we've partnered with Pratham, the largest education NGO in India. Mission: have every child in school, learning well. Instead of those 2 drinks, perhaps we can put $25 towards one child's future. Let's get 50 children into this program please? I'll match $ for $. Modest steps by us, life-changing impact for others.
Every year, 26 million Indian children like Nancy enter first grade. Half will reach fifth grade unable to read or write. Many of these kids live in rural communities, where most of India's poor reside. My birthday wish is for every child, no matter what their background, to have equal access to a quality education.
A donation of $25 to my campaign for Pratham will help educate one child.
Pratham is the largest education NGO in India. Their mission is to have every child in school and learning well. Rather than build schools, Pratham develops low-cost solutions to address gaps in the education system and works in collaboration with India’s governments, communities, educators and industry to improve learning outcomes for millions of chilren each year.
Their methods have been evaluated by the J-PAL, an outgrowth of MIT's Department of Economics, through randomized control trials for over a decade and have been found to be highly effective in improving learning.
And you can give with confidence because Charity Navigator ranks Pratham USA in the top 4% of 1.5 million American charities.
