On 8 September 2014, Gyanada staff and volunteers across India participated in Pratham Books’ “One Day, One Story” event as part of International Literacy Day. “One Day, One Story” is an annual storytelling campaign which involves more than 1000 storytelling sessions across the country, designed to provide delightful stories in multiple languages to children from under-served communities.

We organized and participated in events in Kochi, Pune, Kolkata, and Ranchi. We read to more than 500 children, including boys and non-Gyanada children that day. All the kids had a blast, as you can see from the photos here!

Events like these are organized around the year and we are always in need of volunteers who live in different parts of India to provide ad-hoc assistance in school visits, reading sessions and other events. If you’d like to play a part in developing girls’ education opportunities in India, please get in touch and apply to become a volunteer.
