Why are we fundraising?
The WordsWorth Project came out as a self designed project from our personal narratives. A combination of early childhood memories surrounded by books and reading, volunteering experiences and a belief that every child deserves equal opportunity was interwoven into our planning for the project.
The idea that tackling language competency would result in the largest gains in learning outcomes forms the backbones of the project. This is because language is the medium through which all subjects are taught and any improvement in the former will spill over.
The WordsWorth Project looks to create fun reading spaces for children stocked with levelled storybooks by indigenous publishers. With an understanding that our responsibility does not end there, we have volunteer intervention to help map individual child progress.
What do we plan to do with the funds?
Currently running on a non-profit model, all donations are utilised in our project to meet our expansion and operational plans. April 2015 saw the project entering into the 4th month of its successful operation. The project is currently functioning in two learning centres- one in East Delhi and one in South Delhi in association with the Kutumb Foundation. The funds collected will be specifically used in increasing our books inventory in the existing centres, improve the existing spaces in terms of aesthetics, utilities and infrastructure and expand the project to new learning centres.
