Review for Pratham USA, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pratham India is a very clean, transparent NGO focusing on Child education in every state of India while empowering women and men who work with Pratham. I beleive that Pratham model of working with government and non-government institutions maximises the resources available to child education. Pratham participates in the educational survey ASER which is extremely important monitoring aspect of the effort. In USA, Pratham USA is a professional organization that as a US citizen I feel very proud to be part of. Pratham is filling an important function of child education and people empowerment in the underpriviliged sector of India. I am extremely satisfied being a Pratham volunteer.

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

I have seen Pratham Marathi Language, Math and English classes in and around Pune, Maharashtra. I have been very impressed and seen Pratham teaching methods work. The Read India campaign is having an effect evident in ASER survey.

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

Develope opportunities for individuals from USA and other developed countries to work directly with Pratham India workers.

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

I get energized by the dedication shown by the Pratham workers in India and the positive energy I receive from Pratham USA.

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

reach more children in India.

Ways to make it better...

I beleive Pratham India will benefit by more Pratham USA volunteer/workers working directly with them in India. Also, Read India effort needs to be an ongoing initiative otherwise the results can drop.

One thing I'd also say is that...

You will enjoy getting involved with Pratham USA and Pratham India.
