Spreading the joy of reading during the Pandemic

Amidst the nationwide lock downs in the country, the approach to children’s learning and particularly of those from the marginalized sections has been affected. More than academics the social and emotional well-being of children need to be taken care of at this time. And what better way than stories that children can read, hear and watch to escape from everyday troubles and worries.

As part of Tata Trusts, we are committed to reaching children and teachers with stories of hope. We have put together stories from the ground of children, teachers, and librarians who inspire us to keep going and give us hope that things will get better.
