Pratham Books Champion : Vineeta Thomas

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 Vineeta Thomas. Vineeta is currently pursuing her Masters in Social Work from Christ university. She was a fellow with Teach for India for 2 years. She likes interacting with children as somehow it brings out the child within each one. She said that being associated with Pratham Books enabled her to reach out to more children in the school she taught. She wrote ...
I thought I would approximately reach out to 100 kids but I did to 300 and today (9th) I'm going in to two orphanages I'm associated with to conduct the session. children are brilliant with ideas..

Thank you Vineeta for spreading the joy of reading!
