THE STORY:

Yogi Patel wrote

Since 1999, as a co-founder of Pratham USA, i have given my time, money and heart to Pratham's noble work in India because I believe that a child needs to be in school and learning. Not on a farm or in a factory working. 

If $100 can fund a village library that serves 100 children, why wouldn't we support it? 

I am donating $1,000 and asking you to join me at that level or at any level of your choice. Please note that between 4th July and 31st October , an anonymous donor will match 1:1 doubling our impact up to total of $100,000 that we raise. 

Please click the donate button on this page now and give generously. Thanks.

We are Pratham, India's leading NGO dedicated to eradicating child illiteracy, and we need your help. This Fourth of July, we launched a six-week campaign to establish 2,000 lending libraries in villages across India. A donation of $100 provides 200-250 books, story cards and other materials to make a library a reality.

 

Our goal is to raise $200,000! If we can raise $100,000 by August 15 (India's Independence Day) we can unlock an additional $100,000 in match monies from an anonymous donor.

 

A LITTLE BACKGROUND...

Recognizing that illiteracy and poverty are intrinsically linked, Pratham uses education to open the door to opportunity and empower communities. Our programs are making an impact - 80% of children who attend a Pratham learning camp can read fluently by the end of the 40-day session. We want to keep this momentum going. In the villages where we work, books are rare to non-existent. Pratham can offer one rural community sustained access to books for a modest $100.

 

ADDED BONUS...

Every donation will receive a dollar for dollar match. That means a donation of $100 can establish not ONE but TWO libraries.

 

SO JOIN US IN SPREADING FREEDOM FROM ILLITERACY!

Together we can break the cycle of illiteracy and poverty one child at a time. Because from educated youth come prosperous communities.
