Help Build Libraries in Rural India

White paper: Philanthropic work is required to boost Indian School Libraries

Together, let’s build a nation of readers!

Liferarian Association is helping raise funds for organisations registered with Donate-a-Book for Daan Utsav, India’s biggest festival of giving.

The funds raised will be used to get storybooks from Pratham Books for libraries in schools and community centres across India.

Help us celebrate Daan Utsav and spread the joy of reading.

Rs.500 will add 10 books to our library campaign.

DONATE A BOOK

Dear Reader,

Please contribute to building libraries for rural centres in India. Although libraries exist, they are depleted of resources and have little relevance to present-day education. Your contribution counts to raise the standard of education where it is most required.

Libraries in rural India support a literate environment and provide equitable access to print and digital resources. They open up opportunities for learning, citizenship, creative thinking, and individual curiosity. Education is the only être to raise the standard of a child.

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.
