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.
RECOGNITION & AWARDS
Almost 80% of India’s girls leave school before completing Grade 8. Pratham’s Second Chance program assists them to continue their education and become employable.
The 18-month long Second Chance program costs $500 for one girl to complete her secondary education. Your contribution towards this will change her life forever.
