Easy Tours of India in Austin is proud to donate an ultra-luxury tour package to this year’s Pratham, USA Houston Gala. This black-tie event will take place in Houston, Texas on April 20, 2012. Easy Tours’ owner and president, as well as, other staff members from the Austin office will be present to show our support to this fantastic organization.
Pratham, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, began in the slums of Mumbai in 1994 and this organization’s main focus is on
literacy and the education of impoverished children. They are the largest educational non-profit in India. Easy Tours of India considers Pratham as an exemplary organization because 94 % of their revenue is spent directly on communities in India. They continually promote low operational costs and their organization was granted the highest rating on Charity Navigator for their sound fiscal management. They have grown substantially since 1994 and now maintain facilities and provide education for 21 states in India, including Jaipur and Delhi (Two cities frequented by Easy Tours clients). Since 2007, Pratham’s Read India campaign, that focuses on teaching underprivileged children to read, write, and perform basic arithmetic has impacted an estimated 33 million children.
Easy Tours of India takes pride in our commitment to the environment. Our travel arrangements are available with a zero carbon footprint. We understand how fundamentally important it is to support the communities we do business in, and to protect, enhance, and ensure the continued existence of our surroundings wherever our tours take us. Likewise we encourage and honor other organizations that have similar beliefs.
The Austin office staff of Easy Tours is excited to attend such a prestigious event, and is pleased to provide an outstanding organization like Pratham with much-needed funds to continue to provide the children of India with educational opportunities to succeed.
