On 4th December 2015, Drink Me Chai donated £5,000 to Pratham UK that will help 6,000 children learn to read this year.


Thousands of children in India will have a brighter future thanks to an on pack promotion by Drink Me Chai. Every purchase of Drink Me Chai Latte will help children in India receive an education thanks to the company’s on-going commitment to Pratham, an organisation dedicated to improving education for children and young people across India. 

Drink Me Chai’s founder Amanda Hamilton, who recently presented a £5,000 cheque to Pratham UK, wanted to “give something back” to the country which introduced her to Chai, a blend of black tea, milk and spices.  Having seen first hand the incredible work done by Pratham, from grass roots levels up to official education policy, she knew this was an organisation really making a difference to people’s lives.

“Childhood illiteracy in India is a fundamental problem that blights the lives and prospects of half the country’s children,” said Amanda at the occasion.  “Pratham understands how to address this crisis and through its Read India programme, they are working tirelessly to improve the lives of millions of children.  I am proud that Drink Me Chai can play a part in helping young people and their families realize their hopes for a better future."

“By putting Pratham on packs of Drink Me Chai, we hope to spread the word about this wonderful charity, and to prompt others to support their work.”



Vinati Sukhdev, Executive Director of Pratham UK said, “With this generous donation from Drink Me Chai, Pratham will be able to help even more children not only attend school but thrive there.”
