National Council along with our National Service Director are excited to announce this year's Literacy Through Unity Week Beneficiary: Pratham's Second Chance Program.
This program is in its third year in seven states with about 4,200 girls enrolled. The program sends tutors to different rural areas in India to teach girls that had to drop out of school for various reasons. These include parents wanting to save money, the travel to secondary schools being unsafe or parents just not believing their daughters should be educated. The tutors teach girls and help them pass the 10th grade
