3 reasons to support India Giving Day with Pratham

 

We’re excited to announce that Pratham will be taking part in the first ever India Giving Day on March 2, 2023!

India Giving Day is a national day of philanthropy celebrated annually across the country. It will shed light on the key issues facing the country, highlight some of the innovative solutions that are currently underway, and provide people of good will the opportunity to be a part of the solution.


Here are three great reasons why you should celebrate India Giving Day with Pratham USA this year:

1. Empower India’s next generation.
Learning changes lives. It opens minds to a world of new possibilities, transforming the trajectory of children and young people – and the future of their families and communities, too.

2. Give women a second chance to learn.
Did you know 4 million Indian girls are out of school? Of those who do attend primary school, 80% drop out before reaching eighth grade. Pratham’s Second Chance program provides young women with access to secondary education and the opportunity to earn their 10th Standard diploma in a safe, supportive environment.

3. Teach children essential skills.
It only costs $25 to teach one child for a full year with Pratham. Through our innovative and cost-effective programs, children develop the foundational skills they need to succeed and embark on a lifelong journey of learning.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be launching a fundraising campaign where you can make donations to support our goal to change lives through learning. If you can’t wait until India Giving Day to support Pratham, make a donation online now!
