Mini Libraries for Rural Villagers

With 68% of India's population living in rural areas, the schools are barely able to provide tools of basic education. According to a survey of more than 30,000 youth from 1,641 villages, 27% of 14 year olds and 21% of 18 year olds couldn’t read their class 2 textbook in their regional language.

While reading is fundamental to a child's development, there is a staggering amount of children without much access to reading for enrichment. 

We at Chirag believe that a journey of lifelong reading should start at a young age. So, if the child does not have resources to go to far off public libraries, we will take the libraries to them - as MiniLibraries. We collect/buy a variety of fun, age appropriate books forming mini libraries and donate them to schools.

Just $150 can provide 1 mini library to a village school and make a LIFELONG difference in the childrens’ lives, introducing them to the joy that is in reading and learning.

This is how YOU can make a difference.

Please help and support our campaign for these children!
