Review for Pratham USA, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pratham for me is a charity that embodies everything I believe in. It is not only a charity, it is more than that. Educating the children of India is investing in the future of an economy. It is a stepping stone where educated children can become part of a productive labourforce in the future. The assessment and monitoring of Pratham's effectiveness is very impressive, everything is accounted for and statistics produced by independent organisations such as the MIT Poverty lab. Its success in such a short time just says it all!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Since my association with the organisation the movement in London has really gained a huge momentum. It's activities range from sports events, panel discussions and ofcourse fundaraising. Since 2007 the numbers who can read and write are 35 million.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Link the organisation to more academic institutions who through helping with research can be of help explaining donors why their contribution is so important in shaping the future economy of India.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting the various workers in India ex; the Kolkata office and seeing their passion and dedication, ofcourse this is all enginneeered from the top, the founders whose ethos is exemplary.

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

The volunteers I met are from London. The students from London who went out there and worked with Pratham have come back with great stories to tell.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Go onto the next project successfully. The Read India 11 programme for higher education.

Ways to make it better...

My experience could simply not have been better. I enjoy meeting the people I work with and pratham has given me a goal to achieve each day. No matter how much effort is put in there is so much to be done.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The challenge of reaching out there and convincing families to regularly send their chidren for studies. also I can imagine working with the local govt. cannoy be asy.
