We at Sarvahitey have been working in states of the North East for the past 5 years. A major project that we have undertaken is Project Paper Bridge. We plan to build libraries in each district of India. We have already built 282 libraries across India. This includes 25 libraries in Nagalanad,25 libraries in Sikkim,2 in Arunachal Pradesh and 1 in Meghalaya. Our libraries have seen a resounding success and serve the dual purpose of nourishing reading levels as well as help build a cultural bridge for the population of these states and the rest of the country through our network of libraries.
Covid19 had ensured our project stood at a standstill with no book donations and continuous lockdowns. After months of despair and hopelessness, we are back at work with a strong conviction to ensure each and every district of India will have a library before the end of December 2020.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO ENSURE ALL LIBRAIRES GET THE BASIC MINIMUM FACILITIES IN ALL DISTRICTS OF NORTHEAST.
Each passing day is making the students restless for a learning centre near them, each day we have to delay the work a little because of high costs involved in working in remote regions.
We require a total fund of 25,000 per library which involves bookshelves, a fresh coat of paint, books, globe, dictionaries, maps, Atlas etc. The fund is required for the initial phase of 40 libraries.
