ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader” as quoted by Margaret Fuller very well explains the importance of books in a child’s life.
Rural India is home to several girls who do not have access to formal education. There are many hurdles that these young girls have to overcome to complete their schooling.
One of these hurdles includes the unavailability or shortage of books due to absence of libraries in Government schools.
SarkariSchool.in is trying to support these deserving students.
We at WeCitizens Foundation & SarkariSchool.in aim to uplift young minds by raising funds to provide library access to 1000 girls in 10 government schools in rural areas under our Project- Gudiya. Our project aims to support ‘Education for Girls’ by arranging the books for libraries in 10 schools who accept those girls who have not been able to complete their education and for those girls who live in remote areas where getting access to books is difficult.
HOW WILL THESE LIBRARIES HELP?
Hanging Libraries will be installed in schools and they will include basic and moderate level story books that can be read by both beginners and fluent readers.
The libraries will also include Autobiographies and Self-help books that will focus on improving the overall personality development of the children.
Books that are beyond the students’ syllabus will engage them in boosting their communication skills, writing skills, creativity, and other related interests.
Students will be briefed about how to use the libraries and take care while handling the books through Orientation programs.
A library committee will be set up in schools that will ensure the safe and effective handling and usage of books.
Along with books, some funds will also be allocated for purchasing trunks to store books when they are not in use during holidays and vacations.
Books will be purchased from the National Book Trust with the help of the raised funds. If additional books are required, they will be purchased from Organizations like Eklavya and Pratham.
