Shop Pratham

We all do a lot of online shopping these days and there is an opportunity here to donate to Pratham UK every time – at no extra cost! Visit and register Pratham UK as your charity just once (we are pre-approved!) and then every time you shop a percentage of your spend is donated by the retailer to Pratham. Here is a video on how it works. A huge number of stores and brands including John Lewis, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Amazon, eBay, Argos, Expedia, and Debenhams contribute to “Give As You Live” so shopping and choice are never a problem!
