Reach To Read Initiative
Reach To Read Initiative is helping to create a knowledge base beyond academic books among the students studying in Rural Areas.

At Indian Terrain Nature Trust, I, as a Managing Trustee, and our team are working towards improving the lives and livelihoods of disadvantaged people residing in the remote tribal regions.
We have been working for the last ten years back with local schools and communities in the rural areas adjacent to the protected areas of India.

We are also happy that now Rotary E Club of E -Connect has come forward in helping us to raise funds for our project Reach To Read, which is about creating libraries in the remotely located government schools. The students in these areas don't get exposure to other reading materials apart from their academic subjects.

We plan to create libraries where the schools don't have any library in the first phase with a kit of 200 books and then gradually taking care of the schools where they have a library yet need more books to cater to the students. Kindly support our cause by donating and sharing our fundraiser.

This is an opportunity to give back to the community by way of supporting the setting up of school libraries.

Any Rs.10,000 (or multiples of) to set up a library and make a positive impact, an aluminum plaque ( 400mm X 300 mm) bearing the sponsor's name will be prominently displayed at the library.

Please note, you can contribute any amount too and every amount is a big amount to reach our goal.It helps to harness the power of the crowd and word of mouth when people share the campaign with their networks. So we request you to please share the campaign, Thank you !
