International Literacy Day with Pratham Books and Toybank

8th Sep 2012, New Delhi


To mark the International Literacy Day, Toybank Delhi became a Pratham Books champion. We participated in their book reading campaign. Armed with two beautiful stories titled 'Susheela's Kolam' and 'Ambili', two of our volunteers Ashima and Jean carried out a reading session for the girls at Protsahan. The volunteers and the children were totally mesmerized by the innocent characters of the stories, and we thank Pratham Books for creating such humble lives.



Besides the book reading, we also had a games session with the children. It was a follow up of the toy-library that we had set up a month before. The children at the centre impressed us by showing a willingness to learn more complicated games such as 'sudoku'. Based on observations made during the follow up, we updated the library with 6 new games and some craft-kits.
