Our project aim is to inculcate is to build reading habits among our students by providing verity of books and build reading and writing creativity and improvement. The purpose of the village level library is to provide accessibility to the students at their door. Through this program they can develop wall writing skills, strong communication skills so that they can get updated about the new pedagogy of education. MVDA believes that with transforming global dynamics in education the grass root education system should also changes with it. The way forward is amalgamating modern pedagogy with traditional knowledge.
We talk about mountain children who are like minded and talented have dreams for better life, and struggle to study despite difficulties, even though don’t have the same opportunities and resources. So we would encourage young likeminded people to donate books for the mountain kids so that they can also access the library and fulfil their dreams. Through this campaign we will upgrade our exiting village library and develop 15 new library at the village level. We will take Rs. 2 ruppes from each user for library maintenance.
