Building sustainable libraries for underprivileged children
Anandaya Foundation offers its expertise in setting up a joyful and impactful children’s library in government schools. Anandaya Foundation’s signature project, Project Pustakalaya, is simple and unique. Educator and social activist Jaishree Goyal, the founding trustee of the Anandaya Foundation, has devoted the last 20 years of her life to reducing the educational disparities that low-income children experience. Anandaya Foundation is getting closer to its goal thanks to the collaborative efforts of all the stakeholders.
children have already benefitted from our libraries
libraries have already been built so far
teachers have been trained to enhance student outcomes
Our library, the Pustakalaya has been designed for children to be able to abundantly experience the joy of reading, irrespective of where they come from. Using the library regularly enables our children to:
Shifting the reader from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I can read’ mindset
Making reading joyful and natural
Enhanced reading, comprehension, and expression skills
"Successful people have reading as one of their habits, these libraries will inculcate the habit of reading in the school children at a nascent age. These children are the future of our country."
