Pratham Books Champion : Akshara Foundation

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.

When we asked the Akshara Foundation library team if they want to participate in the International Literacy Day events, they immediately agreed to conduct storytelling sessions in 40 of their libraries! Not only did 40 libraries participate - but multiple sessions also took place! The total number of sessions that took place were 85!!!

The storytelling sessions took place in the following schools :
