Who we are

Ovee Trust is a registered not-for-profit organisation. It works towards the educational and social empowerment of citizens belonging to tribal and nomadic communities, particularly in rural Maharashtra through interventions in children’s education, health, and rights.

Our work and its impact

The 'Balkatta' programme was established with the goal of cultivating a reading culture among students in order to promote their linguistic and intellectual development. The more books that are recited to children, the more thoughtful they become. This activity entails reading books to children on various topics, participating in book-based activities, open reading, participatory singing, and storytelling. Our primary goal is to strengthen the decision-making abilities of the children. Using the effective methodology of 'constructivism,' we enable children to experience the various concepts in the curriculum. This initiative is being carried out in the urban and tribal areas of the Yavatmal district in Maharashtra. Over the past six months, we have worked with 195 children through this programme.

How we will utilise these books

The funds from this campaign will be used to get Marathi and English storybooks for a community library in Dhangarwadi. 110 children will benefit from close access to multilingual storybooks as they learn to read fluently in both English and their mother tongue. The storybooks from Pratham Books are engaging and filled with colourful illustrations to help the Balkatta programme scale its impact and encourage children to develop a reading habit.
