I am excited to tell you that I will be traveling to India in early 2013 to work with Pratham, the largest non-governmental organization (NGO) working to provide quality education to the underprivileged children in India. Pratham’s mission is to get “every child in school and learning well.” Pratham is founded on the firm belief that education is the fundamental right of every child and no child should be deprived of the basic right simply because he or she does not have access to it or does not have the resources to realize his or her dreams.
In India, I will create a series of video documentaries that will focus on the mission of Pranham, including personal stories of hope from the children themselves. By telling these stories through journalistic writing, videography and photography, I plan to bring awareness of Pratham’s efforts in hopes that it can continue to provide this service for years to come.
But I need your help. Pratham is excited about my project, but as a non-profit, it has limited funding and will not be able to cover the cost of airfare to India. I am aiming to raise $2,000 to pay for a roundtrip ticket. Your donation — whether $5 or $100 — will help tremendously in order for me to get to India and help Pratham spread its important message.
Pratham is offering a safe and sustainable place where children can receive an education so they can reach their goals. Most families in India receive on average Rs. 2000 ($36 USD) a month, which is not sufficient even for a single meal in a day. Pratham has been guided by the belief that solutions to fill the gap in the education system should be available even in the most remote parts of the country — from the toughest terrains to areas affected by ongoing violence. Eighteen years after its formation, the Pratham initiative has become a widespread movement reaching millions of children across 19 states.
