Review for Pratham USA, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Very Disappointed by this charity organization!! This organization needs serious help and intervention. The organization was started with a great intent and vision. However, as 2010 approaches, Pratham is still far from achieving its original goal of seeing all children reading and reading well. The organization has started to take short cuts to meet its vision. The curriculam has been modified (Read India) to quickly hit the numbers, rather than to really teach children quality education. The leadership is weak, power centric and there are little or no avenues to provide feedback to the people at the top. This organization has the potential to achieve very great results; if there is better mechanism for selection of leaders (rather than simply looking at who will write the biggest check). The volunteering opportunities are not very structured; and volunteers can be better leveraged.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff (not including leadership)and volunteers are committed.
