A group of dynamic volunteers from Aksharbharati donated more than 700
books worth Rs.20,000 helping us set up 4 libraries across 04 schools. The
library system has started with Dr Ambedkar Primary School with 100 books.
Gradually, the work is going to be extended to the other 03 schools -. Mahadji Shinde
High School, Mahadji Shinde Primary School & Annasaheb Primary School enabling us to reach to more than 400 children.
The library stock includes a good mix of books from different categories
such as story books, educational material that enables the students to be exposed to a different world all together. At the moment GREAT volunteers are running the library at one of the schools.
To inculcate the habit of reading among the younger students, the volunteers read out the books containing interesting stories to the 3rd std students & help students share their insights and learning’s. We have a list of activities that we are working on to continue such interactive initiatives in other schools as well. The students are showing increased participation in the book reading sessions and we hope to see increasing number of students availing the facility.
A small initiative can make a big difference in another person’s life.
