Friends and Family I am raising money on behalf of Pratham Education Foundation, an Indian-based charity, which focuses on primary school re-education!
Short story, it’s personal. An extended family member is on the board of Pratham and shared with me the incredible work Pratham does in India.
Pratham was founded on the belief that every child has the right to quality education. It is one of India’s largest and most successful non-governmental education organizations, having affected the lives of more than 58 million underprivileged children since 1995.
For eight straight years, Pratham USA has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator that places Pratham USA in the top 3% of 1.5 million American charities.
Over 88% of funds raised by Pratham USA go directly to support the educational program in India.
Pratham's impact is centered around lifting up those children and adults who slip through the cracks of the Indian educational system. Each of your donations will help those who are left behind.
I’ve always viewed the Iron Man as the pinnacle of athletic, endurance-based achievement. Between my scoliosis and my commitment to other sports, I wasn’t sure I could do it. This year I decided to begin training. The triathlon consists of a 1.5km swim down the Hudson, a 40km bike up through Harlem, and a 10km run through Central Park. The event is held every summer, the streets are siphoned off and 3,000 athletes compete.
How can you contribute?
I dislike asking for money and I especially dislike asking for a lot of money. But I believe $10 is enough to make an impact and spread awareness. I hope to create a ripple effect by inspiring you all to read more about what Pratham does, why it’s important, and what role you can play.
I also love to be challenged and will gladly accept a conditional donation based on my completion time. If I fail to meet my goal of 2 hours and 40 minutes, I will cover your donation. Please do email me and let me know if this would be of interest.
Lastly, If you would like to consider getting more involved with Pratham USA 14 US-based chapters or team please reach out to me or check the link here https://prathamusa.org/chapters/.
How can you see my results?
I will be sharing a link to my results with everyone who donates and/or is interested. Live athlete tracking is included in this year’s event. If your donation is conditional, maybe it’ll be exciting to see whether or not the money is coming from you or me :)
