BENEFITING: PRATHAM USA
ORGANIZER: PRATHAM USA
EVENT: Pratham Phoenix Gala 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 16, 2017
I am participating in this campaign in honor of my grandfather, who despite having financial restraints, gave education to his three children, with each one excelled in their field, my uncle remained Dean of University, aunt being successful dentist and my father being successful veterinary professor who in turn dedicated his life in teaching and making many more successful veterinary physicians. My mother taught poor children in Government schools in India for 35 years and retired as Principal.
With that basic foundation and inheritance, wherever I stand today is due to education. I believe that by providing education, you not only make the child self-sufficient, but also earn them the respect.
Every child deserves education, no matter where they are born. If you wish to bring a change in society, educate the children! Education is the antidote for ignorance, population and poverty. I strongly support Pratham as it makes difference in the lives of children every day by providing them education and opening the doors for all kinds of opportunities.
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 children 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.
