Pratham 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 its inception in 1995. Pratham USA with 14 US chapters raises awareness and mobilizes financial resources for the work on the ground. Read more about Pratham USA here: https://prathamusa.org/

How does it work?
Click on the Join button and set up your individual fundraising page. You can set your own reading and fundraising goals. Reading for yourself or to younger children - both count!
If you prefer to form a group of Grouponers and raise funds together, one of you should join the campaign to create the fundraising page.
Share your own fundraising page, get your friends, and family to donate on your page, and help give children in India an opportunity to learn.
How much should I raise?
It takes Pratham $25 to give one child an opportunity to learn in India for a year. Any amount - more or less - is welcome!
Enjoy your summer reading, see you on the Team Groupon page!
