The saying by Nelson Mandela describes the power of education. It is the first step towards one’s success and growth. But not every individual is lucky enough to get the low-hanging fruit. Some of these star-crossed are the children from the weaker section of society.
There are several NGOs that work towards the upliftment of such underprivileged students. One such NGO is ‘Pratham’. This year, the 'Indira Gandhi Peace, Disarmament, and Development Award' has been awarded to the social service organization, Pratham.
