Story


Summary:

Hi,

My name is Ramamohan Rao Kakani and I am raising funds for BREAD SOCIETY for establishing 50 libraries benefiting 22000 students in rural government schools of AP and Telangana. We have already reached 4.5 lakh students through the 1024 libraries we have established in these states. The books are accessed by children between 5-14 and they are allowed to take the books home. This helps spread the joy of reading beyond the boundary of the school.


All the funds donated go to the library and we have no overhead costs (all work is done by

volunteers). All donors get individual feedback report on the utilization of their funds. We have end to end transparency and 100% traceability of funds utilization. We will provide the contacts of the school where your funds were utilized.


'Kindly support our cause by donating and sharing our fundraiser.

We are grateful for your help!


Summary

50 new libraries will be established benefiting 22000 children. Since 2009, we have set up 1024

Children's libraries in government schools in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in India providing

access to books for over 450,000 underprivileged students. Children inculcate reading habit and

develop self-confidence.


Challenge

Government school students have virtually no access to library books. Most school libraries are kept in lock and key for fear that books will get tampered. The student cannot take books home and have to read only during the library period (45 minutes per week). 80% of the government schools are in rural areas where quality books are not available. Children also cannot afford to buy books. Reading is limited to academic books. The young minds have no easy access to wider variety of books.


Solution

Our library contains 600+ curated books with colorful graphic designs on a wide variety of subjects. The books are age appropriate. Children are allowed to take the books home. Student volunteers or library teacher operate the library. As children read more books on wider variety of topics, it increases their self-confidence and inculcates good reading habits at a young age.


Long-Term Impact 

Children's Library is a research based initiative to rejuvenate school education and to create a knowledge-based society. Each library caters to the needs of 440 poor students. It will serve thousands of students for well over two decades as new books are added annually. Literate parents and siblings also get to read the books at home. This helps improve intra family communications and strengthen relationships.
