Place: 20 Madarasas and 20 Girl Child Learning Centres
Azad India Foundation organized reading sessions all through the day on 7th September at 40 Nonformal Centers under ProjectTalim and Project Aalima Girl Child Learning Centres.
40 teachers, 7 cluster level coordinators and 1282 children read, listened and narrated Paplu the Giant in English and Hindi.
The day was full of excitement at the centres as preparation for the D- Day had started almost a week before.
This small step of Pratham Books brought joy of reading to so many children.
