Pratham Books Champion : Human Integrated Life and Learnings (HILLS)

The following report was sent to us by V.Jayalakshmi from Human Integrated Life and Learnings (HILLS).

We conducted the Pratham Books Champion event on 08/09/13 for a residential school children at Kallipatti village, Gobichetipalayam Taluk, Erode district. Thirty five children and three teachers attend the program. We gave them four books to the children and asked them to see the pictures in small groups. Then we took books one by one and told them the stories of following. 
• Goloo
• Thullu & pullu Rabbit stories
• Pictures of shivaji fort
• One Kannada book 

Children enjoyed the stories of Goloo and Rabbit stories. The Goloo stories made them to reassemble so many circles in their life. When the stories ended with no circle in our answer sheet, they shocked and realized important of education and scoring. In the rabbit stories they thrilled by two rabbits and how they chased away the wolf. 

We felt it is meaningful event because most of the children are from poor family and their parents unable to take care. So they left them with residential schools which run by our government under Serva Siksha Abiyan Schemes.

We really thank Pratham Books for this opportunity due to this we reached very poor children and understood their socio-economic situation.

Session held in : Tamil

Thank you Human Integrated Life and Learnings for spreading the joy of reading!
