Conferro Auctions are proud to announce their partnership with Pratham UK, as part of their commitment to helping provide basic literacy to India’s 100 million illiterate children. The partnership will see the sale of two lots donated to Pratham at Conferro’s upcoming Vintage Bollywood Memorabilia auction, on Friday 29 November at the Westbury Hotel. A percentage of all sales achieved at the auction will also be donated to the charity.

Through its Read India campaign which began in 2008, Pratham has now reached over 35 million children across 17 Indian states. Pratham improves literacy and arithmetic skills, protecting vulnerable children from child labour and providing young women with the opportunity to return to school.

Conferro’s Founder Sharan Seth says,“I am delighted to be partnering with Pratham UK and helping to make a real difference to the lives of millions of illiterate children across India. It is partnerships such as these that raise awareness of the importance of education and help underprivileged children in India avoid a life of poverty and destitution”.

Pratham UK’s Executive Director Vinati Sukhdev adds,“Over 100 million children across India are affected by illiteracy, which can condemn them to a life of poverty. This important partnership will help fund our projects in India, improving the literacy and arithmetic skills of primary and secondary school children. It is partnerships like these that can have a life-changing impact on the futures of Indian children”.
