Mission: Our mission is ?Every child in school and learning well?. Recognizing the importance of early interventions, we focus most of our programs on pre-school and primary education. We believe that by providing children with a good education, we create opportunities not only for them, but also for their families and communities.Seeded by UNICEF in 1994, Pratham began in the slums of Mumbai. Currently, we serve underprivileged children across 21 states in India.Pratham?s programs are unique because they are scaleable and low-cost. We also work to improve existing systems rather than building parallel ones.

I am from the country & even the city where Pratham is doing amazing work to get the children off the streets & give them a future. For those who have seen the movie,"Slumdog Millionaire" - now have an insight into how important is Pratham's work & the true but tough picture is in front of the whole world.They had identified the needs of these children & have been helping them way before any Governmental or NGO's have even looked at their situation.

The work that is being done is amazing & is helping the children -who are our future no matter which part of the world they belong to. The results speak for themselves.
