What are you contributing to?

We are building libraries in some of India’s most rural villages: Libraries that don’t simply house academic books, but all types of books (say comics, magazines, etc.) These would be the first libraries that these villages will have. We plan to start small…with 10 libraries in 10 villages. This will then be scaled up and introduced across India. Eventually, we plan to have a computer with an active internet connection too in these libraries.

The idea is to make it a community hotspot for the village, where people enjoy coming together – to read, to discuss, to celebrate. We want it to be a place where people can learn and grow together, where everyone can pursue their passion.

We understand that a library is much more than a storehouse of books. We visualize it as a colourful space filled with storybooks, comics, encyclopedias, magazines, academic books, activity books and materials for games/puzzles/art/music.

If we have your support, very soon we will have numerous such hotspots across the country!

How can you be a part of this-
Option1: Contribute by making a donation on this page
Option2: Donate used or new books, stationery or anything you feel should be a part of this space! (Contact SUVASIS on the email id given at the end)

Every contribution, regardless of its size, would be valuable.

The background for this idea
According to the 5th All India Educational Survey, only about 40% of the schools have libraries that too in public schools. Moreover, the situation in rural areas is worse than the urban areas.
