Pratham Uk
Pratham, which means ‘First’ in Hindi was founded in Mumbai by UNICEF in 1994 to help provide basic literacy to India’s 100 million illiterate children. Through its Read India campaign which began in in 2008, Pratham has now reached over 35 million children in 22 Indian states. Pratham is a grassroots based NGO and works with young people, village communities, governments, corporates and volunteers to provide a model that is economic, scalable and does not replicate government infrastructure. Pratham’s development interventions include improving literacy and arithmetic at primary and secondary level, protecting vulnerable children from child labour and providing greater opportunities to return to school for young women.

Hello :), Thank you very much for visiting my page.

I have completed London Marathon on Sunday, 23 April 2017 to raise funds for Education in India - the charity Pratham UK.

Interesting story:

A boy 22 years old entered the UK in the year 2003 with few hundred pounds, borrowed money from his cousin. He was coming from a very humble background where the family of 4 was surviving on a salary of a single breadwinner mother approx. £40/month.  He worked his way up and now running a successful immigration law firm in Central London. This was only possible because he had the opportunity to obtain his education. This has helped not only to bring a better life for his entire family but now this person has embarked the way to help to educate as many children as possible in India to make all opportunities available for them to create similar success, happiness for themselves and their family and for those who need education.

Dear reader, this is a real story, and it is my story.

Pratham (the charity) and I believe that education is a fundamental human right.


  1. India is home to 40% of the world's illiterate.
    India is a special country, with an especially big literacy problem.
  2. Children suffer the most.
    Even worse, of the country’s 210 million children, almost half are unable to read. That is both the root of the problem and its cruellest consequence. Without education, these children are vulnerable and unlikely to ever rise above the poverty of previous generations.
  3. A Persistent child labour problem.
    In India, an estimated 11 million children work as child labourers. It is an unacceptable truth that is both a cause and by-product of India’s continuing cycle of illiteracy. 


  1. Pratham (the charity) is providing a cost-effective, efficient and scalable solution by addressing the root problems.
  2. I will help them in their big cause by raising £10000 running London  marathon
