“The entire Trinidad Indian population came down as indentured labourers- “coolies” to use the offensive term of the British empire. If it was not for education we would never have escaped poverty. I would be a poor excuse of a man if I did not try to help out those in India who didn’t get a chance. Furthermore when I look at the Aser reports I see the same problems of Trinidad reflected therein. The state system delivers poor learning outcomes to the majority while a minority through private schools and tuition thrive. Please rest assured of my support so long as I am able.”

“I love technology so this pledge was near and dear to my heart! 🙂 What I also really liked about donating this amount was the mention that it would help a specific village. One of my beliefs is to go narrow instead of wide and realize the impact.”

“Pratham is truly a great cause that appeals to us a family. Its key focus on children’s education aids them to better themselves and be lifted out of the poverty cycle. To be able to provide the foundations for a young person’s quality of education can only enhance their future prospects… Thank you to Pratham.”
