Pratham Books Champion : Praveen Lata Sansthan

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.

Praveen Lata Sansthan sent us the following note and pictures. PraveenLataSansthan is a Jaipur based Non-Governmental Organization. The Primary focus of PLS is on the problems of the poor in their struggle to obtain a life of justice and dignity & Environment stabilization, food security and empowerment of the community for self-governance. Primary areas of concerns are to work for Child Welfare, Women Empowerment & Rural Development.

Inititally when we opted for opting for story telling session we felt we will conduct 2 sessions and we will be able to touch only 50 children. 

But we aimed to touch as many as possible. Than we planned to take it through Bal Sabha which we organize in communities and schools. We spoke to the School authorities and they agreed to it.

We took it to 3 days program (Balsabha) with support of PRatham Books and it was appreciated by School authorities & Newspapers.
