Pratham USA’s Readathon isn’t just a fun summer activity, it’s an opportunity for kids to make a real difference while developing a love for reading and a deeper awareness of the educational needs of their peers in India – children like them, who despite sharing a universal desire for learning, often face vastly different circumstances. Since 2012, hundreds of children and young people have participated in the Readathon each year, and their families and friends have supported them by donating.
