Every Child Deserves Literacy & Learning
Over 50% of India’s fifth graders cannot read at a second-grade level. Without literacy, the cycle of poverty continues. Australians can help to change that. Pratham’s donors and volunteers have already impacted the lives of over 45 million children in India.

Pratham Australia’s Mission
We’ve developed low-cost solutions that help us improve the quality of learning for Indian children on a large scale. By working with governments and building community programs, we’ve already reached tens of millions of Indian students and young people.
Every Australian has the opportunity to get involved by donating, volunteering, keeping up with the latest news or even joining one of our travel programs. We also work with corporate sponsors and partners who would like to join the movement and build an even stronger connection between Australia and India.
