Pratham Books Champion : Haji Public School

This International Literacy Day, Pratham Books has taken a 1000 steps towards a 'Reading India'

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. Last year Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day and we conducted over 250 storytelling sessions. This year we are delighted that over a 1000 sessions are happening across the length and breadth of the country.We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

These pictures were sent by Sabbah Haji from Haji Public School, Breswana. Breswana is the native village of the founding members of the Amina Trust and a prototype of the average, remote, inaccessible village in the mountains of Doda in Jammu and Kashmir. The very first HAJI PUBLIC SCHOOL (a not-for-profit setup, with subsidised fees) under the Amina Trust umbrella was established here. The storytelling session was conducted by Madhuri Vijay. 

Thank you Haji Public School for spreading the joy of reading!
