Pratham Mohalla Libraries (community libraries), are a vital resource that provide children with access to books and learning opportunities within a community. They are strategically placed in and around public spaces, such as streets, parks, community halls, homes, and rooftops.
Each Mohalla Library holds 50-60 books, spanning diverse genres and catering to a wide range of interests for children in grades 1-8. In addition to offering a rich collection of reading material, these libraries feature activities that enhance children's learning retention and stimulate their curiosity.
This India Giving Day, you can support a Mohalla Library for just $25. Your gift will help us scale this initiative to even more communities! Every dollar raised will enable the establishment of new libraries, filling them with a fresh set of books, and ensuring that children have the opportunity to discover the joy of reading and access the boundless world that lies beyond theirs.
"I want all mothers to become leaders."
"A child’s first school is her home and her first teacher is her mother," says Anju, a mother of three from Delhi. "To teach children, the mother has to learn first."
Anju was first introduced to Pratham when her two youngest children joined Anganwadi programs. She watched her children’s development progress, thanks in part to her continued engagement in their learning at home. Since then, Anju has continued to be involved with Pratham, becoming a leader in her local Pratham Mothers’ group.
"I would like to continue my association [with Pratham] for as long as possible," she says. "I have progressed and chosen my ambition. I want my children to choose their ambition. I want all mothers to become leaders."
