On Friday, September 13, 2019, we lost our dear father, grandfather, and great grandfather, Dhirajlal Bechardas Shah.
Dhirajlal was a lifelong champion of education in his professional and personal life. To celebrate his nearly 90 years of life, our goal is to fund the education of 90 students through Pratham USA. It only takes Pratham $20 to educate one child for a full year.
The ability to read and write can truly make a difference in a child's social, economic, and personal development. In India, an estimated 100 million children are illiterate. Without intervention, these children are left with little opportunity and will be destined to a life of poverty.

Thank you for helping us honor our father, grandfather, and great grandfather who will always be remembered for his patience, integrity, wisdom, and kind heart.
