THE STORY:


I am lucky to have had a multitude of opportunites to educate myself throughout my young 26 years of life. However, not everyone is so fortunate. If I had simply been born in another part of the world, perhaps to a different mom and dad, my story might have been like one of the many girls in India who never got educated. I support Pratham because they give all children, especially girls, the opportunity to live a life we often take for granted. A life that is full of freedom, brought about through educational growth and success. 

On July 4th, I (Madhulika) and my parents (Deb & Sheena) begin our 8 day climb to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro (elevation 19,341') in Tanzania, Africa. We climb to raise awareness for Pratham. 

As a family with three daughers, we believe some of the greatest impact we can make is by educating girls. Research shows that educating females benefits not just the girls, but the whole community. Educated women tend to have smaller, healthier families, and to make better choices in the areas of healthcare, employment and education.  Join us in supporting Pratham's girls' education program, which annually helps thousands of Indian girls and women complete high school and allows them to lead a life of dignity and possibilities. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 and give 20 young girls who face an uncertain future the opportunity to finish school and break the vicious cycle of poverty.



ABOUT PRATHAM

Pratham is the largest education NGO in India. Its mission is to have every child in school and learning well. Rather than build schools, Pratham innovates 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 children each year.  Its 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.


GIRLS’ EDUCATION
Since 2011, Pratham has expanded its scope beyond primary education to offer female dropouts a chance to complete their secondary education. Studies estimate that 80% of Indian girls leave school before eighth grade.Through its hub and spoke model, Pratham assists girls 14 and older in completing their secondary school education and earning their 10th Standard diploma. The program, called Second Chance, has impacted the lives of more than 18,000 girls and women, with pass percentages for enrollees reaching 88% in the 2015-16 school year.
