Pratham Books Champion: Ashima Khemka, Jean and Toybank

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.

From the Toybank blog :

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.

Thank you  Ashima Khemka, Jean and Toybank for spreading the joy of reading!
