Pratham USA Readathon encourages children in the US to read books while giving them the opportunity to help less fortunate children in India Learn to Read. As everyone knows, reading is always beneficial for the reader. Pratham USA Readathon enhances the value of this reading by also encompassing the acts of caring and giving.
Here in the US, almost everyone is reeling from the adverse impact of the covid-19 crisis. Our hearts go out to those affected. Imagine if these dire conditions are multiplied a hundred fold! Unfortunately that’s the grim reality for millions of underprivileged children in India who are without any access to educational opportunities during this pandemic. Continued disruption of their education will further jeopardize their fragile future.
Our small but significant contributions through the Readathon will enable Pratham to provide educational content and virtual outreach for those children in this time of desperate need.
We invite you to join the Pratham USA Readathon 2020 Portland Team. Thank you for your compassion towards those less fortunate, and for your commitment to support Pratham’s work in India. For more information on Pratham's response to the COVID-19 click here.
