THE RISE CAMPAIGN

Because Education Always Matters

SUPPORT THE PRATHAM USA RISE CAMPAIGN

India’s lockdown will disproportionately affect children and youth who already experience barriers to quality education. During this uncertain period, Pratham remains focused on connecting with children in new ways to fulfill our mission.

The Responsive Innovation to Sustain Education (RISE) Campaign has been established to sustain our work in more than 5,000 communities and to ensure livelihoods for our 6,500 full-time employees—the backbone of our organization. 

As of May 1, with the aid of 65,000 volunteers, we are reaching children in 11,000 communities. Your support today is crucial for this effort.

Please consider making a donation today. The price these children will pay if they fall behind is too great.

Read the full update on how Pratham is responding to this crisis.

"As a father of three young children, I see how disruptive this situation is for their education. I am fortunate to have the tools to support my children and believe it's incumbent on me to help those who don't have the same access and will be hit hardest by this crisis. That's why I'm giving to the RISE Campaign."
