HT Paathshala has broken barriers and brought together people from different sections of society to enable change.
“I’ve always felt that helping others in some way or other is our duty. We receive a lot from our society and environment and tend to take it for granted. In my profession as a doctor, I am lucky to be able to help people but I wanted to empower them. In that respect, education goes a long way and every child has a right to it.
With Pratham, I had an experience that was an eye opener. I had a lot of fun with these children but most of all, I saw that they know a lot about our country and have a zest to learn that makes teaching a joy. I could see that there is so much talent and capability waiting to be tapped and it is important to give them the chance they very much deserve. HT Paathshala has helped me do my bit in enabling this.”

Over 70,353 lives have been impacted under various projects of Paathshala since its launch in April, 2012. The volunteer program was initiated on 7 Dec 2015 with our partner NGOs to make volunteering accessible to those interested in devoting time for children in need. Be it a donation or a purposeful hour spent with underprivileged children, small actions make a big difference.
