Gift A Child The Joy of Reading - Sponsor a Reader

In India, an estimated 89% of 250 million children read below their grade level. 9 in 10 children cannot read. This fundraising campaign is an effort to change the above mentioned scenario.

pencilbricks is a non-profit initiative in Ahmedabad, working with a vision of empowering low-income communities. We run around 15 learning centres in Chandola, Ahmedabad, with the help of our student leaders.
With an aim to empower children to be able to read and write, we wish to provide them exposure to technology in education through fREADom - a reading app. This app, which helps in raising happy readers, will serve as a significant step towards building reading-friendly learning centres in the communities and help our student leaders enhance their students' reading skills.
The app requires an annual subscription which would cost Rs.799/- per child per year. We are currently looking to get subscriptions for 62 children, amounting to Rs.49,538. You can support with any amount suitable for you or sponsor a child's subscription by donating an amount of Rs.799/-.
Every contribution matters.

For the love of reading.

With much joy, I would want to share that we have finally signed the purchase order for buying the subscription for the fREADom app for 40 children from pencilbricks. Although, we are still 22 children away from the actual goal, we are grateful for your support because of which these 40 children will now fall in love with reading.

Thank you dear donors.

Dear Supporters

I began this campaign with a mission of creating readers. What amazed me is the fact that there are so many people around who believe in this mission and are ready to support in whatever way possible.

We have been able to raise enough amount to start the project with almost 40 children. I will soon be sharing pictures and videos of our children using fREADom, the reading app, and will update on their progress.

Our target was to get subscriptions for 62 children. We are still INR 10,000 away from the goal but we are still hopeful and going ahead with mission.
Heartfelt gratitude to each one of you once again. You indeed have made a difference.
