Pratham Books Champion : Meera Damji

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 shared by Meera Damji. The school Meera chose is a school by the railway tracks of Goregaon station. You have to cross the tracks to get there, there’s no other way. These children live in the slums by the tracks and were most creative when asked where else would they like to make kolams. The sky was the favourite. They were air drawing their kolams in the skies.

Thank you Meera for spreading the joy of reading!

This blog contains stories sent in by all our champions. Browse through the blog for more stories. You can also go through the tags on the right side of the blog to find stories happening in your own city.

Note : If any of you want to be a Pratham Books Champion and join us on our journey of getting 'a book in every child's hand', write to us at web(at)prathambooks(dot)org.
