We hope children will never know. Join us in a mission to help India's children read.
असतो मा सद्गमय । तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय । मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय । From ignorance, lead me to truth; From darkness, lead me to light; From death, lead me to immortality We are a class of 300 kids across 6th, 7th and 8th grades in a government school in old Delhi area. We need Pratham books to increase our reading levels which Bhaiya says are very important to realize our full potential. These books will weave the magic in our lives, We hope!!
This LLF initiative aims to bring about whole school transformation in a South Delhi Municipal Co-operation school. The school is battling with a steep fall in enrollment and high dropout rates. Established in the year 1986, the school has just 60 students across grades 1 to 5. The students come from the poorest families in the locality. LLF will work towards improving the school physical and emotional environment, pedagogy, leadership and teacher effectiveness and engage with community. Setting up class libraries would help in creating a healthy classroom environment, where learning will be joyful.
Pratham Books is a not-for-profit organization that publishes books in multiple Indian languages to promote reading among children. To celebrate Daan Utsav, Pratham Book is aiming to build one library for every state in India. Each of these libraries will be given to a worthy and genuine non-profit organisation or school doing exemplary work with the children of that state. This is the second time, we are running a campaign like this one. The picture above was sent by an organization working in rural Uttarakhand (which received a library kit through our previous campaign).
In an ideal world, all children should have experienced the joy of reading. Learning to read can take children to different places and brings the world right in their hands, while of course, developing their language and communication skills. However, in rural Rajasthan, children rarely have access to books and libraries. It is our dream that every child should have a book in her hand. Come along and help us make this dream come true!
The books raised through this campaign will go towards the poor students. The basic aim to provide them good & behavioural knowledge & make them good citizen of the country.
"Yes we can" say my 33 bright kids of Grade 5 studying in Government School, Govindrajnagar, Bangalore. I've promised them a classroom that welcomes them with love for reading and exploring more through experience. Growing each day by encouraging, challenging and pushing each other are our motto. The classroom library shall give us the exposure of a different great world of knowledge and open our views and broaden perspectives. Looking forward to this opportunity.
