Padhai-Ruke-Nahi: As schools are shut, lets deliver 100k books to kids


Due to the COVID-19 situation, all schools have been closed. Basis our research, we are not expecting schools to open till next year. While private schools are conducting classes online, govt. schools are not able to conduct such classes as:
  • 50% of the kids studying in govt. schools do not have a smartphone at home
  • 25% of the kids who even have a smartphone have network problems and hence, mobile internet is not able to uninterrupted video calls
  • Some kids who even have smartphone as well as internet connection get access to the smartphone for a limited time as the phone belongs to their father who needs the phone most of the times. Even in the free time, the phone has to be shared with siblings
Thus, effectively only 10-20% of the students have proper access to phone and internet to attend uninterrupted classes. Students of grade 9-12 are most affected as they would have least time to catch-up before their exams. For grade 12, it could even impact their possibilities for admission to colleges and performance in entrance exams.


Due to these conditions, the learning for govt. schools kids has come to a halt. Basis more research, wherever schools have closed for 4-5 months in the past (e.g., Somalia and African countries during Ebola), the learning level of kids depreciated and it took them 6 months – 1 year to come back to their earlier learning levels.

To prevent such a situation, Books For All has already distributed 10,000 books to kids from low income communities. In phase 2, we aim to distribute around 1 lakh books to kids and experiment with BooksForAll libraries in slum communities in Delhi-NCR

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support so far

We have raised the funds to distribute 30k books to underprivileged kids in the country. While we are home delivering books to some kids in Delhi-NCR, this Phase would focus more on partnering with credible NGOs across the country to provide them books and reach their beneficiaries.

To help raise the rest of the amount faster, Milaap is offering a 10% matching on all the payments (till Monday 10 AM , 26-Oct-2020 ). This means for every 5000 INR, Milaap will contribute an additional 500 INR to the campaign thereby creating 1.10X the impact.

Please come forward to help Guzarish

In the first phase, we raised close to 2 lakhs and used the funds to subsidize ~10,000 books for kids.

We are using the same this DaanUtsav to partner with students, teaching them digital marketing and then asking them to use those skills to champion the cause.

Since we believe in the power of the students, we are expanding the campaign goal to 10L and will be using the fresh funds to distribute more books to kids and pilot BooksForAll libraries.

Thank you all for your support till now!
