Welcome to Pratham USA Readathon 2015 – where kids in the US read books to help kids in India learn to read. Reading is Good. Reading for a good cause is Great!
Kudos to all our Readathon teams and participants! We were able to win all of the $50K Tarsadia Foundation FREADOM EXPRESS Matching Challenge. Thank you, Mr. Bhikhubhai Patel and Tarsadia Foundation for generously encouraging our efforts.
