As one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the country, Pratham focuses on high-quality, low-cost, and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system.

Förenade Care – Volunteering at a Swedish care facility
At our headquarters in Malmö, Sweden, employees have the opportunity to exchange one working day annually and transform it into a day of supporting care staff at Förenade Care – a Swedish care company with about 50 units across the country. Volunteering at a care facility allows our employees to experience and understand a day-in-the-life of caregivers and residents. This increases our understanding of the lives of individuals directly in need of Arjo's products and solutions, and allows us to contribute directly to our local community.
