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

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!

Dear Donors,

In Phases of our campaign, we have been delivering books to underprivileged kids at their doorstep. In the month of July, we distributed ~3000 books and August is also trending at ~3000 books.

Apart from NCERT, we have also started providing reference books to kids in an exchange model - give your reference books from old.class and get new reference books from us. And the kids are loving it :)

A big thank you for all of you for making this possible

Dear Supporters, Contributors and Donors,

We are happy to inform you that we have distributed 800 books to students in select grades across 6 different schools of New Delhi. Here is a message from one of our Partner Teach For India Fellows - Misk Khurana, who got books for her 26 third graders -

"I am so grateful to you (Books For All team) for this opportunity. The books have helped spread so much love and joy in my children's hearts and beliefs in their parents' minds. Thank you so much for doing this and being so understanding and accommodating in the process.🌻"

Rishabh, another TFI Fellow from Delhi appreciates our initiative. He has distributed sanitary napkins along with the books to the students and has shared some beautiful pictures of happy students with us.

With this by next week (15th July) we will complete Phase 1 of our Book Distribution Campaign that involved partnerships with Teach For India Fellows in NEw Delhi.

We are now moving on to Phase 2 of the Book Distribution Campaign wherein we are delivering books directly to students at their doorstep. In this phase, we will be charging a small sum of Rs 15 from the students towards our delivery and operations cost in exchange for their old books.  This will help us create a chain of beneficiary students who are reusing each others' books and finally ensure that - "Padhai-Ruke-Nahi" for a larger number of students.

We have already conducted a pilot for Phase 2 and delivered books to around 50 different students across Delhi NCR. We are now aiming to distribute around 1000 books in Phase 2 by the end of July.

We will keep you posted with the final distribution record of Phase 1 and further updates on Phase 2. Please also find attached, photo testimonials of students happily united with books :) (Pictures sent by TFI fellows - Rishabh, Divya, and Misk)

We request you to share this campaign with more and more people to help us support more and more students! It's because of your support and contribution that we've reached this far in the campaign.

Thank you for all your love, support, and kindness in this endeavor!

Best Wishes,
