NGOs tie up for poor UP kids' education
Tuesday June 25, 2013 8:10 PM, IANS

International NGO Wrigley Company Foundation Monday announced the launch of a three-year, $1 million educational partnership with NGO Pratham to provide quality education to underprivileged children in India.

An official statement said the initiative, targeted at helping children in the top mint-farming districts in Uttar Pradesh, would reach 40,000 children in 1,000 villages.

Uttar Pradesh is one of the key mint-producing areas of the world.

Pratham provides educational enhancement for children aged 5-14 through a combination of week-long concentrated learning camps and volunteer tutoring classes between camps.

As part of the partnership, Pratham Books will also publish a series of "mint story cards", which will tell the journey of mint from planting to the end-product use stage, helping children to read and follow a story.
