We have an active reading program where children from Class 2 to 8 (from this year up to 9th standard), are using our libraries set up in our rural schools. Every week the child will spend an hour in the library in the assigned period and read a book related to subject or a general topic, which helps the child get a better understanding about the subject and also improve the language.
Isha Vidhya, a not for profit education initiative, works for the economic and social empowerment of rural children in the villages across southern state of Tamil Nadu, India.
