Indian Moms Connect is teaming up with Youth For Seva, to fund books for a library for a bridge school which has about 25 to 40 students at one time. The school is run at Poorna Prajna layout at Bengaluru where volunteers from Youth for Seva teach children of immigrant construction workers till the time they can be enrolled into the nearby Government school. Children are between the age of 4 years to 14 years.
Indian Moms Connect is a space by moms for moms and is looking to give back to the society in a small way by encouraging reading among children. Like Pratham Books, Indian Moms Connect believes that every child should read and there should be a book in every child's hand.
Indian Moms Connect is teaming up with Youth for Seva. Youth for Seva has been working tirelessly all over India helping during national calamities and doing work to make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged. Youth for Seva (YFS) started in April 2007 as a platform to provide opportunities for youth who wanted to take active part in community development despite time constraints. Through this platform, YFS aims to empower youth to become positive change makers who will enable organizations and institutions to work without a vested interest. The goal of YFS is to support schools, NGOs, government hospitals and other organizations in the social sector through volunteers who can help them mitigate some of their shortcomings and challenges. Volunteering is made easy and customized to the individual’s interests and time constraints. There are several YFS chapters around the country and we look forward to making volunteering a movement.
The funds will be used to buy books for the children of a bridge school at Poorna Prajna layout, Bengaluru. These are children of mainly construction workers who have migrated from other states to find work at Bengaluru.
