About Us

The flagship project of the Anandaya Foundation is Project Pustakalaya. Project Pustakalaya creates joyful and impactful children’s libraries in government schools. Unrestricted access to child-friendly, contextual books that match their reading levels becomes a catalyst for enhancing their reading, comprehension and expression skills in a vibrant and motivating environment for children. The New Education Policy 2020 mandates that children receive a holistic education, which allows for the development of an environment that encourages reading and critical thinking while also improving comprehension and communication skills through books and educational games. All of these ideas are well supported by the library. Project Pustakalaya is simple, unique, and replicable. Through the capacity building of the school teachers,  addressing the challenges and peer-to-peer sharing of best practices of the principals, and coordinating with the government education department, the Pustakalaya becomes an integral and indispensable part of the school, thereby ensuring sustainability.
