On March 25th, Prarthana received the Daily Point of Light Award recognizing her inspiring work as a changemaker! For the last four years, (since her 8th grade), she has dedicated herself to spread the love of maths amongst young students. She established the OneInMath program in ChicagoLand and helps hundreds of students with the help of an army of high school volunteers.
This award is given out each weekday by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Established by the late President George H.W. Bush during his presidency, the Daily Point of Light Award recognizes extraordinary volunteers who are donating their time and talent to better their communities.
OneInMath is a fully volunteer run structured program to teach basic math skills like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to kindergarten, first, second and third grade students. The program provides opportunity for high school students and adult volunteers to make a difference to their community.
