Every Child in School and Learning Well
More than 50% of India's fifth graders cannot read a second-grade text. You can change that.
India accounts for 28% of the world's working age population. However, only 2% of its current workers have received any formal training.
A Second Chance
Almost 80% of India's girls drop out of school before reaching grade 8. We afford dropouts a safe, supportive learning environment so they can complete their secondary school education.
In the words of Nobel Laureate Abhijit Banerjee, "Pratham's impact on the lives of millions of kids has been tremendous; it is quite simply an exceptional, best-in-class organisation that has managed to scale across India."
Of the 250 million children worldwide who cannot read or write, two-fifths live in India, where for a quarter-century Pratham has been working to alleviate this crisis.
We develop low-cost solutions to improve the quality of learning and work with governments to take them to scale.
Our community-driven approach has engaged hundreds of thousands of volunteers and has affected the lives of 75 million Indian children.
Give every child a chance at brighter future
Pratham's Teaching at the Right Level approach has been recognised by the World Bank as an important way to rebuild children's basic reading, writing and maths skills as they return to school after the pandemic, which saw most schools closed for 18 months.
Thank you for your generosity!
