(Donate your old books to poor children)
As an avid book reader and collector, perhaps you would have wondered why many others also are not reading the books that you read! Perhaps you may also be planning to make space for new books in your book shelf (or personal library) by removing the ones that you no longer are interested in. Perhaps your children have grown older and would like to share their favourite books with less fortunate children. Or you many have moved on to reading e-books on your iPad or Kindle, and would like to give away your paperbacks.
We at Vandemataram Foundation (VMF) would love to be the medium through which you can pass on your old books to deserving poor children and young adults living in rural areas, who otherwise cannot get to access them. VMF is presently working in nearly 600 under developed villages in Warangal and Mahabubnagar districts, to improve the quality of education of students in the government schools, We believe that inculcating the habit of reading in them will not only help in improving their academic performance, but also contributes in developing their personality by expanding their horizon. We also run a facility ‘Palamur Pragnadhamam’ in Hyderabad for orphans hailing from villages in Mahabubnagar, by providing them with free accommodation and board so as to enable them to pursue their college education and prepare for competitive examinations to get a job. Our sister organisation ‘Komaram Bheem Study Circle’ provides free hostel facility in Hyderabad for tribal youth of Adilabad district, who are pursuing their higher education in engineering and post graduation.
Your old books can be put to good use by all these poor children and youth. Hence, we urge you to bring all your unwanted books and leave at our stall in The Hyderabad Book Fair, Peoples Plaza, Necklace Road, Hyderabad from Dec 14th to Dec 25th 2012. They could be in Telugu or English, children story books or college subject books.
You can drop your books at:
1) Vandemataram Foundation, Stall at People’s Plaza, Necklace Road, Tank Bund, Hyderabad
(During the upcoming Hyderabad book fair from Dec 14th - 25th)
2) Vandemataram Foundation, State Office
