Pratham UT is a chapter of Pratham USA, started by a group of students in the fall of 2003 who wanted to make an impact on the world. As a campus organization, Pratham UT’s goal is to raise funds and increase awareness on campus about the need to combat illiteracy in India.
In order to achieve this goal, the organization hosts many fundraising events throughout the academic year. Some of the most popular annual events are the annual Basketball Tournament and the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament. Through these activities, Pratham UT is able to move toward its goals while providing students the chance to learn more about the organization in a fun and interactive setting. Pratham UT welcomes all students of the University of Texas at Austin community to contribute to this world-changing mission.
