2023 Pratham Fall Galas: A Season of Inspiration and Impact


Like the vibrant hues of autumn, Pratham USA’s 2023 Fall Galas were a season of inspiration and impact, bringing communities together through the shared mission of changing lives and transforming communities through learning for children and young people in India. Together, we raised funds to support the learning journeys of over 370,000 children!

The 2023 Pratham New York Gala was a night to remember! We were inspired by Siddhi’s story of transformation through Pratham’s Second Chance program and celebrated Pratham’s initiatives empowering female entrepreneurs, adorning ourselves with bracelets handcrafted by these remarkable women. Salim-Sulaiman gave an outstanding performance, filling the room with energy, and Indra Nooyi’s keynote echoed the essence of philanthropy. The evening was further enriched by the presence of India’s esteemed former president, Shri Ram Nath Govind ji, who delivered a heartfelt speech highlighting the transformative power of learning.

The Pratham Mid-Atlantic Gala was a resounding success, leaving a lasting impression on all who attended.We’re so grateful to our generous sponsors and the amazing Chandrika Tandon for her keynote address. And of course, the incredible Indian Idol Singers, Sayli Kamble and Mohd Danish, blew us away with their performance!

The Seattle Gala was a heartfelt event that united us to support Pratham’s mission of providing learning opportunities to children in India. We were honored to have Laxman Narasimhan, CEO of Starbucks, deliver an inspiring keynote address.

The success of the Boston Gala was a testament to the collaborative efforts of our committee, volunteers, attendees, and our generous sponsors. The gala was further graced by the insightful keynote address delivered by Srikant M. Datar, Dean of Harvard Business School.

The Pratham Chicago Gala was an unforgettable evening, marked by inspiration, laughter, and a strong sense of community. We were honored to have Rattan L. Khosa, P.E., deliver an insightful keynote speech, and Vik Pandya kept the atmosphere lively with his engaging stand-up comedy.

The Austin community’s generosity made the Pratham Austin Gala a roaring success. The event featured Priyanka Singh, a local fashion designer, showcasing a fabulous collaboration with Pratham’s Skilling Center in Kanpur. Vyasar Mamta Ganesan, a writer and counselor, hosted and entertained the audience.
