“Education is a fundamental human right and Pratham is providing a cost-effective, efficient and scalable solution by addressing the root problems”.

Rebecca Winthrop

Director, Centre for universal Education at the Brookings Institution.
“Pratham piloted the Read India programme aimed at students who are unable to keep up with the level of teaching in their classrooms. They organised extra tutoring for these kids and have come up with different ways of organising this. It has become very effective in increasing reading levels”.

“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.”
