To celebrate Diwali and the release of my new record "Turiya" this year, I am partnering with Pratham Organization again to raise money to give the gifts of education and basic literacy to underpriviledged children in India.
The Pratham Foundation helps improve the basic reading and math skills of young, underprivileged children in India. Pratham is one of India’s largest and most successful educational organizations, conducting a number of programs ranging from learning interventions, vocational training, a girls' education initiative, research and advocacy efforts and edtech solutions.
Starting 11/7 (Diwali), my goal is to raise $1000 in donations for Pratham within the next 10 days. Anyone who donates any sum of money will received an exclusive pre-order download of my new song before it officially releases on 11/16.
To give you a sense of what your contribution will mean:
- $20 gives one child an opportunity to learn through Pratham programs.
- $100 gives four children an opportunity to learn through Pratham programs.
- $100 provides access to tablet based learning for 10 children.
- $300 gives one young person vocational training at Pratham.
- $500 gives one girl dropout a second chance at an education through Pratham
All donations and amounts are respectfully welcomed and deeply appreciated. Let's do this!
