Pratham India: Every child, learning well

Very powerful words and photos by thirdeyemom: “Education is without doubt one of the key ways to lifting people out of poverty. In India, a country of over one billion people and an estimated 400 million living below the poverty line (World Bank 2010), education has become a matter of survival for the millions of children living in poverty in both rural and urban India. There is a dire need for educational services and Pratham has worked hard at filling the gap.The need is so vast it is oftentimes hard to comprehend. Yet at least some of the millions of India’s children were in a happy place receiving their basic human right to an education.”
