About us

Pratham, which means “first” in Sanskrit, is one of the largest NGOs in India in education. Pratham addresses a unique problem facing India: In the world’s 10th largest economy, one-half of the country's 210 million children cannot read adequately.  Without quality education, these children are vulnerable to child labor, child marriage, violence, poverty, overpopulation, exploitation, and unemployment. This is perhaps the greatest challenge facing India today.

By increasing the literacy levels and employability of India’s underprivileged, Pratham is committed to improving India’s economic and social equality.  Pratham does this through the introduction of low-cost education models that are sustainable and reproducible, and by operating an industry-specific vocational skills training program. In 21 years Pratham has helped provide quality education to over 40 million children. We will not rest till our mission, “Every Child in School and Learning Well” becomes a reality.

Pratham USA is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization with a four star rating (the highest possible) from Charity Navigator.  Pratham USA raises approximately $15 million annually, primarily from individuals but also foundations and corporations.
