Donate a Book to an Underprivileged Kid - A Pratham Books Initiative

Pratham Books, a not-for-profit organisation, has developed a fund-raising platform to donate books to children.  This initiative termed Donate-a-Book is very active now with its first set of campaigns. The children benefited either belong to a special school, rural library, or are associated with any organization that loves reading books for children. Actually, now is your turn to either run a campaign or donate-a-book. The children get a set of Pratham Books equivalent to your donation amount. Anyone can create a campaign using this crowd-sourcing platform.

Personally, I was happy to run a fully funded campaign for the kids of special school AIKYA. We like to thank the three donors for their magnanimous contribution. For an amount of Rs.7350 raised we are eligible for 200 books from Pratham. 

The first set of campaigns can accept donations for one more week. Click here to view the D-A-B page. Donate a book now :)
