FAR and Pratham Books first joined hands in 2014. Pratham, one of the largest NGO's in India, was set up as a nonprofit children's publisher.
Merasi School Students relish these good, affordable storybooks. Each year they joined in Pratham's All India Read Day until covid closed their school.
Cherished storybooks sat in the library gathering dust until teachers asked to distribute them to homebound children longing to be back at school.
We must restock our depleted inventory of enriching Pratham stories by Apr 15.
Can you remember the sweetness of reading a storybook to a child? Or a child reading to you? Gift confined children without running water or electricity their own books and transport them on boundless literary adventures.
Right now for every $280 raised, Pratham will support Merasi School with a STEM library kit of 100 new storybooks that explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics.
