Who & Why?

The NEP 2020 (India) has encouraged investment through philanthropic participation that will help build a vibrant and robust education system for students in schools. Inspired by the NEP 2020, and the desire to build foundational literacy and numeracy literacy, Liferarians, a passionate community of Indian Librarians will help build libraries in rural schools and/or ashram shalas where tribal students receive an education.

Liferarians believe that when students are provided with a relevant and current library resource, students will be empowered. The outreach program will align with the educational needs of the students to promote literacy, student well-being, scientific temper and support powerful learning while fostering a culture of reading and learning.

To meet literacy challenges, Liferarians will:

  • Provide access to print and digital materials for the community.
  • Promote and build knowledge and skills for librarians/educators/community helpers to promote reading, writing & research skills through a variety of projects.

Build a collection of print books in the local language and English books, which will include fiction and non-fiction that are relevant to the scope of students in schools.

Provide technology devices like laptops & tablets with internet access to eBooks and digital curriculum.

Provide training to 2 or more High School students and Librarians/Educators/Community helpers to effectively run the library or community reading centre.
