Together with our Indian partner organisation Prayatna
we want to establish libraries in rural government schools in Bihar.
Access to high-quality children's books is essential for high-quality education. Especially in the aftermath of the pandemic, many children run at risk of falling behind or even dropping out.
A well-equipped library can help preventing this.
In the past, we already helped establishing libraries in some schools. The results were overwhelming. Our partner organisation explained that a competition had started among the children: who read the most books?
This is where we want to continue. With books from non-profit publishers, we want to bring high-quality, illustrated children's books to rural government schools in Bihar. One such publisher is Pratham Books
. Our partner organisation had obtained books from this publisher in the past.
About 80€ enable our partner organisation to establish a small library with around 100 illustrated children's books in a rural government school.
