Pratham Books Champion : Ankit Chadha

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.

This photo story was sent by Ankit Chadha.

The session was conducted on 8th September 2012(International Literacy Day) at the TALENT centre, Turkman gate. The audience were girls - mostly school dropouts belonging to the relatively less literate neighborhood of Old Delhi.

Apart from reading from Susheela's Kolams, I conducted a short workshop exercise on listening with the participants.

Thank you Ankit for spreading the joy of reading!
