Pratham is back with the Champions programme! And it is going to be BIGGER and BETTER! The idea behind the campaign The idea is to encourage children to fall in love with reading.
This initiative is part of the Pratham Books’ Champions program where we encourage our community of volunteers to use one book to conduct reading sessions. These sessions are conducted free of cost and mostly with children from under-served communities.
The quality of these sessions have been outstanding and last year 250+ champions shared one story with thousands of children across India. We continue to celebrate the joy of reading around International Literacy Day.
This year’s event is scheduled for 7th September, 2013.
This year, we want:
1. More champions to participate
2. More regions reached
3. Storytelling sessions in all 22 official languages listed in the Constitution of India.
We hope that these storytelling sessions will also brings to light the issues of joyful reading, access and multilingual publishing.
So, how does this work?
Fill in the form. A copy of the chosen book and a banner will be sent by the Pratham Books team. You are free to choose the place and time you want to conduct the session. You can also conduct other activities that you think may go with the theme of the book.
