Pratham

Pratham is a network of non-governmental organisations that promote primary education for disadvantaged children. Started in Mumbai in 1994, with the support of UNICEF, it now has activities in 14 states of India and has supporting organisations in the US and UK.

The remedial illiteracy programmes of Pratham, unlike many others worldwide, have been proved to work through careful evaluations.

High profile businessmen involved with Pratham include Lakshmi Mittal and Kumar Birla (as directors of Pratham India Education Initiative), and Baba Kalyani (as chairman of Pratham Pune Education Foundation).
