Prior to the Literacy Day event, Mansi Vivek Agarwal gave us a little hint that one of the activities that they were planning with the session was the use of finger puppets. But she did not spill the secret that their performance included a stage and these amazing costumes! Take a look at the first street play they conducted in a slum in Coimbatore.
The second play econd play presentation happened today at the KG Matriculation Government Aided School at Coimbatore, more than 70 children participated.
In its fifth edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 3000+ storytellers who conducted 3200+ storytelling sessions. Many, many steps towards a 'Reading India'!
What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. In 2012, Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day . We will be sharing the stories of all our volunteer storytellers (Pratham Books Champions) through our blog. View more stories from the International Literacy Day Celebrations held in 2016.
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.
