Pratham Books Champion : Khrawboklang Tangsong

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 story was sent by Khrawboklang Tangsong.

We had a wonderful day we collaborate the story telling program with Martin Luther Christian University in which Namrata is a lecturer there.The program was held in Dienglieng Village. 

The kids really enjoy hearing the stories and seeing the picture in the story telling session and I even give extra stories to the student of MLCU to tell the children the extra stories are Pinnocchio, King Maidas and the golden touch, Goldilocks and the three bears, The selfish giant and Jack and the bean stalk. We got four Students (Mr.Commonwell Songthiang, Ms.Lasudaki Kyndiah, Ms.Beauty Mary Jyrwa, Ms.Lahunlang Rapsang) to tell stories to kids we split them in to groups because we want to show the children the pictures also and interact with them. We conduct one general session of story telling to all the kids approx 120 in numbers and then we split them in to small groups in the second part and tell them stories and interact while some other kids participate in the sports and games session.

The MLCU teachers would like to congratulate PRATHAM BOOKS on this initiative and innovative ways of encouraging and inculcating the habit of reading in young children. Personally I am proud to be part of this program and seeing the children enjoying the stories.

Thank you Khrawboklang for spreading the joy of reading!
