Our story

I Padmashree am a teach for India fellow and I hope to build a library for my 200 kids who belong to low income private school in rural areas of Bangalore. I have always seen how much my kids want to read and learn but all the lack are access to good books . I hope to give them the best resources and books to read. The school consists of all low income kids who cannot afford to buy books. Please do the needful :) Thank you in advance. Help us become Democratic readers

Who we are

As I started my teach for India fellowship in 2016 , I saw kids looked up to me to teach them something interesting , something new. These 28 kids belonged to low income community and the only access they had to reading was their text books . I started having read aloud's for them and exposed them to picture books . As I was doing the above for my own class , I realised that the kids from high school couldn't even write or read a sentence which led me to think about my impact across other classes So , here I am raising funds to buy books for my whole school which consists of 200 kids.
