WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Support the Costs of Book Development, Printing and Distribution

Our children deserve the best. Working with this stated objective means that we develop the most attractive books for children in their own mother tongues and rooted in their local contexts.

If you cast your mind back to your own childhood, you might be reminded of the time when your first and most favourite children’s book reflected your own world back to you and tickled your imagination. As you became a fluent reader, you probably began reading about people from other parts of the world.

We would like for all children—specially first generation school-goers to have the same experience with their first books. Just as they require nourishing food, they require the best books that will make them autonomous readers for life. Fluency in the mother tongue is essential for all learning as well as acquisition of other languages such as Hindi or English.

Attractive, illustrated stories and poems, non-fiction in book form introduces children to the pleasure of reading. Such books help them practice a newly acquired skill with the exercise of choice. It encourages them to form opinions and improves their oral skills. These will be published in as many Indian languages as possible, including tribal languages. They will reflect the diversity of stories and experiences  from across the country and give visibility to different childhoods.

Teachers in government schools also need support with books that help them develop and improve their own teaching, given the exigencies of their own classrooms. These classrooms may have children speaking multiple mother tongues, may hail from vastly different backgrounds , they may not be able to attend school regularly and the teacher has to devise ways to ensure that all children learn. Practical tools, fresh ideas to rise to the challenges of an ever-changing classroom will be the fulcrum of this stream of publishing.

Learning material specially designed for children increases their exposure to the number of printed pages from which they can learn. Living in low print environments, they rarely get to read anything more than their text books and simple support material improves their access to different sources of knowledge. This will be guided by curricular objectives and will assist both the children and the teacher. The price will be kept in a bracket that even the most economically disadvantaged can afford. Two low cost learning magazines, namely Chahak for primary grades and Mitwa for secondary grades have been launched under this stream of publishing.

We invite generous and thoughtful people like you to support the cost of book development, printing and distribution of books and material from any of these streams. We will be happy to credit you as the donor/part-donor on the copyright pages of the books/ magazines  for our minimum donation package.

Should you wish to support our efforts with a smaller donation, we would be happy to receive such amounts. They will go towards meeting the costs of developing, printing and distributing books and other material in our proposed streams. We will acknowledge you / your company in our Annual Report.

Spread the word

We’d be most grateful if you could let at least five other persons know about our efforts and garner their support to the cause of getting books to those who need them the most. A word from you might connect us with someone who could contribute greatly in different ways.

We will keep you updated!

We believe it is important to keep you informed of how your funds and support are being utilized. We will share data with you about the distribution and sale of the books that your contribution has made possible. We produce regular reports on all our library activities and conduct yearly learning assessments. We will also share with you when books are supplied to school along with the feedback we receive on their use. Our own assessment of the health of our programmes and their impact will be forwarded to you.

Outcomes your contribution will enable

  • More children from poor families will have access to early reading and other learning material.
  • The number of pages read per child will be higher wherever we are successful in reaching our material.
  • The reading (and overall learning) levels attained by children will be much closer to their age-appropriate levels.
  • Higher order skills (reasoning, problem-solving, creativity) will be much more strongly present among children.
  • Parental involvement with their children’s learning (as in time spent interacting with child, and nature of interaction) and community involvement with schools (e.g. in assessing children’s learning and involvement in school plan development) will be much higher.
  • Classroom practices will more closely approximate desired ones in more schools, with teachers having greater clarity on what to do (as observed in their teaching plans and through interaction with them), and actually implementing it (assessed on basis of classroom observation against a set of performance indicators).
