Pratham Books Champion : Aarohi Bal Sansar

For International Literacy Day (8th September), we had a dream - we wished that 100 people would volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We ended up finding more than 250 champions to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

Pradeep from Aarohi Bal Sansar wrote to say ...

Briefly put, the reading session was conducted in classes 2 and 3 at Aarohi Bal Sansar ( Uttarakhand ), covering around 36 students, on 6th and 7th Sept.2012 ( 8th being a holiday). They also drew 'Rangoli' or 'Kolam' patterns on drawing sheets and with chalk on the floor.

We did follow up this exercise with an Aepan ( the local folk art of Kumaon) Festival at our school on the 14th of November, 2012.

Thank you Aarohi Bal Sansar for spreading the joy of reading!
