Join Dhruv in support of Pratham USA Readathon 2016 (Phoenix)
Every book I read helps educate a child in India
I am participating in Pratham USA Readathon 2016 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 40 books. Please support my Readathon by making a donation to Pratham USA today.
Since my last update I have read:
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
In this book a scientist named Victor Frankenstein attempts to build a man out of dead body parts and bring him to life. Instead, he unleashes a horrible creature on the surrounding countryside.
The Martian by Andy Weir
Astronaut Mark Watney finds himself stranded on Mars completely alone. Mark has to embark on a dangerous quest to stay alive. Will he be able to overcome the impossible odds against him?
Heart of a Samurai by Margi Preus
Fourteen-year-old Manjiro and his four friends are shipwrecked on a deserted island. Beyond the island is the unknown, filled with monsters, demons, and barbarians. One day, an American ship passes near the island and takes them aboard. Over the next ten years, he travels the ocean and visits many places including America. But deep down he longs to return home.
Pratham is the largest not-for-profit organization providing quality education to underprivileged children in India. Pratham uses very low-cost and scalable methods and works in collaboration with the government, local communities, parents, teachers and volunteers across the country to educate millions of children every year. Pratham’s mission is “Every Child in School and Learning Well.”
