Myself Aatmaja, pursuing Gandhi fellowship at Kaivalya Education Foundation. From the past 21 months, I am working with 188 government primary schools of Khandwa district in MP. Khandwa is one of the 115 aspirational districts which is affected by poor socio-economic indicators. As I am working in the education sector I seek your support in providing the ideal number of child-centric books for the library (which is 5 per child for 14,742 students), for developing Reading Habit and giving the gift of value & moral education to the present and future generation of our country.  For this, I require a fund of Rs. 17 Lac.  Library Books helps in increasing the Learning Outcome by almost 12%.

When I conducted a survey I found out that more than 65% of students love reading storybooks. But they don't have the required resources.  Stories create a deeper impact on our mind, through which students can learn the lessons of moral and value education. In Khandwa, 20% of schools are single-teacher schools. In these school’s library books can help in proper utilization of students' time, when the teacher is busy with other classes.

The government is spending a lot of budget for the development of schools. But still, the government doesn’t have the budget of each n every single thing. And it’s our responsibility as a privileged citizen of our country, that we contribute something to give the equal opportunity of 13 million students of government schools across India.

I am just asking you to spend at least 100rs to a maximum of 1000 or 2000rs for these underdeveloped students. And be the part of change together, where we are not complaining and blaming the government for everything. But taking responsibility and charge of bringing positive change.

I just have one month to give the gift of knowledge and moral education to these young underprivileged students. So please support me as early as possible. And inspire all the people around us, for becoming part of “Transforming India’s Government Education”. Take the part of this reading movement together.
