Story

Hi :) I am Kanak.
I am helping The WALL O BOOKS Project to raise funds.

My name is Kanak Thapa  and I am a student of Jadavpur University. I believe building 100 libraries all over the state is a good cause because it provides enjoyable recreational and academic additions to communities.

The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee is one of the books that I like and the reason that I have chosen this book is because this book is a combination of history, myth and magic . It takes us back to the mythical and magical period of the Mahabharata. As we know that Mahabharata has been an important part of  the Indian culture and history. The novel gives us a new interpretation of the ancient culture. The book talks about Draupadi's character as a fiercely independent and rebellious woman who wants to take her Destiny into her own hands, living in the patriarchal world and also about the system of marriage during that period. 
It is a very refreshing book to read.

We want you to join our simple movement of hope to give 1 million vulnerable children in all the 29 states across India access to a hypercool Library + Laboratory and change their lives for ever.

We currently run 164 WALLOBOOKS Centers in 4 States - 100 in Kolkata, 59 in Delhi, 4 in Arunachal Pradesh & 1 in Telengana giving 50,000+ vulnerable children an amazing new way to shape their own future.


It takes us 2 DaysRs. 5000 and 100 Kids to start ONE WALLOBOOKS.
The kids build this entirely with their own hands. 

Experience for yourself what it takes, 
and what it means for the kids --

The WALL O BOOKS Project has now become a powerful Not for Profit movement to give every vulnerable child in India direct access to a Library + Laboratory.  Designed, Built and Managed by children living and growing up in bottom of the pyramid communities, it is a new way for them to discover, learn & have fun together.

We run 4 Core Programs in our centers,
designed to re:imagine learning for the children we serve.



Millions of vulnerable children in India are growing up in a narrow world. Where hope is not even a four letter word. 

The Annual Status of Education Report published by PRATHAM says that barely 5 out of 10 in Standard V can read a basic Standard II level text. Close to 20% children can only read letters or not even that. 14% can read words but not sentences. 19% can read sentences but not longer text.

The final result is a population of young adults who are just not ready to participate in the vibrant dreams of a great country.

Our vision is to ensure that no child 
at the bottom of the pyramid is left behind. 



In 2018 we are on a mission to build 
100 WALLOBOOKS in each state of India.

2900 in total across 29 states to cover 1 Million Kids.

164 done! 
2736 more to go :)

We are raising Rs. 1 Crore to achieve our mission.
