Join Sewan to bring hope to 1 Million Kids in India

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

The WALLOBOOKS campaign of building libraries for underprivileged children in India is a great initiative and I humbly support the cause as it is for the better of the nation's growth right from the grassroots level.

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.

The WALL O BOOKS Project is run by Crayons of Hope Foundation, a Section 8 Not for Profit Organization.  Visit our world at www.wallobooks.org and www.facebook.com/wallobooks to know more about us.

We plan to revamp our  WALLOBOOKS centers and make them more robust. Centers will be provided with 100 books in different categories. Eg - Books related to State and Culture, DIY, Career, Health and Hygiene along with Nat Geo for Kids and Tell Me Why monthly subscriptions.
We also plan to execute our two new initiatives in all the WALLOBOOKS centers.
Kidki Lab: It is a zero cost lab with a portable cardboard box (contains household items needed for the experiments).
Flip Lab: which is aimed at creating change in the economically disadvantaged community through children. We are trying to get in touch with corporates to support us to run these two projects.
We conducted a pilot workshop on Kidki Lab and Flip Lab.
