The national lockdown in India has stranded millions of underprivileged children without access to school or educational opportunities.
Please see Pratham's response to the COVID-19 crisis HERE.
Knowing that the continued disruption of their education will further jeopardize their fragile future, Pratham has quickly transitioned its field operations to remote connecting with children and families in more than 12,000 communities served.
Through Pratham's new iniative, Karona: Thodi Masti Thodi Padhai (Do it: A little Fun, A little Study), every day a Pratham staff member sends the children a text or WhatsApp message or makes a phone call, sharing hands-on activities that are fun, educational, and essential.
Your donation today will enable Pratham to continue this outreach on a daily basis, thereby maintaining the academic, physical and emotional health of these children.
Thank you for supporting Pratham’s efforts amidst the challenging circumstances in the US.
