Review for PRATHAM USA, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What really attracted me to Pratham was its focus on the efficiency of its funds utlization and on improving the effectiveness of its programs. I feel it brings necessary private sector discipline to a public cause. Leveraging off volunteers and government infrastructure (where possible), Pratham strives to keep overhead costs to a minimum. It is reassuring to know that only a minimal amount of the money donated will be lost to friction. Additionally, it is refreshing to see the close cooperation between Pratham and policy think-tanks such as MIT's poverty action Lab to constantly monitor Pratham's programs and finesse it to make them more effective. This hard-headed approach to its mission makes me comfortable that my donations will not be lost in a sea of good-intentions but will actually be put to work to deliver results
