What is the Readathon?
Pratham USA Readathon 2015 is a fundraising initiative that encourages kids in the U.S. to read more books and raise money to help less fortunate kids in India learn to read.
How does it work?
Kids ask their friends and family to donate money to Pratham for every book they read. The more books they read, the more money they raise. Learn more here.
Where does my money go?
All donations to the Readathon go to support Pratham’s work for child education in India. With the help of trained professionals and dedicated volunteers, Pratham runs pre-schools and after-school programs in many cities and villages of India so that underprivileged children can read, write and count at their appropriate grade level. Pratham needs only $25 to educate one child for one whole year.Pratham receives 97% of the money you donate here. 2.9% + 30 cents is charged by the credit card processing company. We thank SeeYourImpact for providing Pratham with its Storytelling Donation platform free of cost.
Who can participate?
Kids of any age can participate (adults too!). Children too young to read can have a parent or older siblings read to them.
Why participate?

What is a Readathon Coordinator?
A Readathon Coordinator (RC) is a high school student who will lead a team of younger readers and guide, support, and cheer them on in meeting their reading and fundraising goals for the Readathon.

Every book I read helps educate a child in India

Dear Friends and Family,

My name is Arjun Mosur. I have decided to participate in Pratham Readathon and help millions of less fortunate kids in India who can’t read, write or count. They can’t afford attending school. Pratham is an organization that is educating such children ever since it was founded in 1995. Pratham needs just $25 to educate one child for one whole year.

I plan to read 75 books from now until September 30th. Reading books is going to help me learn about nature, wildlife, new cities, history, new words, how to build stuff, literature, science, the human body, chess and cars! Please support the Readathon by contributing money to Pratham USA.

Please visit www.prathamusa.org for more information.

Sincerely,

Arjun Praveen Mosur
