Our story

"A child who reads will be a adult who thinks. " I am Gandhi fellow working with CRC (Cluster resource co-ordinator) in goverment school of Bardoli block, Surat district. Our aim is to inculcate reading habits among children by providing them age-appropriate books which would not only enhance their language skills but also their knowledge, cognitive skills, creativity etc. For this purpose, we require library books for 4 Schools where they have library but lack child -friendly books.
