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?

Every book I read helps educate a child in India

Dear Friends,

I am participating in Pratham USA Readathon 2015 because I want to help less fortunate children attend Pratham schools and learn to read, write and count well. Pratham is a not-for-profit organization that is educating millions of kids in India since it was founded in 1995. It is very well known and has won many international awards for its work in child literacy and education. Pratham USA raises funds and awareness in the US for this important cause. Please visit www.prathamusa.org for more information.

Pratham needs only $25 to educate one child for one whole year. I love to read because when I read, I can learn a lot, meet new people, discover new places, find new ideas, improve my vocabulary, use my imagination and never get bored! I am so happy that with your donation, my reading will help many other children. I am going to read 10 books. Please support my Readathon by making a donation to Pratham USA today.

The books I have read this summer are…

The Son of Neptune

The Blood Of Olympus by Rick Riordan:

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone By J.K Rowling

Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets By J.K Rowling

Keeper Of The Lost Cities EverBlaze

Sincerely,
Arthith
