Pratham powers This is Unfolded's education support in India. Pratham UK is a registered charity that engages communities across the UK to raise awareness and funds for Pratham’s work in India.
Pratham's work is wide-ranging, and one of the most important aspects is literacy and learning interventions that engage children from age 3-14 in order to improve their basic reading, writing and maths skills.
The situation for many children in India is challenging, and half of children starting school will still not know how to read or write after several years in formal education.
"At Pratham we take a flexible, frugal approach to our work, as we know that the need for our work vastly outstrips our resources – so every pound spent counts. We work across the vast canvas of India’s communities, both rural and urban; and we are responsive to the wide variety of religious, cultural, and socioeconomic contexts in which children and young people live and learn. Everything we do is designed to be replicated or scaled. Our innovative programs target the learning needs of children and young people according to the educational ability of the individual, and at different stages in their development." says Nick Sankey of Pratham UK.
Every child has a right to education. One that prepares them for life and for work. With Pratham, your sustainable shopping from This is Unfolded helps make that happen.
