Children borrow books to take home. This helps spread of joy of reading beyond the boundary of the school. BREAD libraries are replenished with additional books every year.
All funds donated go to the library. Volunteers do the work. BREAD Society has no overhead costs. Donors get individual feedback report on the utilization of their funds. The Society operates on end to end transparency with 100% traceability of funds utilization. It provides the contacts of the school to donors where their funds were utilized.
Student volunteers or library teacher operate the library. As children read more books on wider variety of topics, it increases their self-confidence and inculcates good reading habits at a young age.
BREAD Children’s Library is a research based initiative to rejuvenate school education and to create a knowledge based society. Each library caters to the needs of 450 poor students. Each library serves thousands of students for well over two decades as new books are replenished annually. Literate parents and siblings also get to read the books at home. This helps improve intra family communications and strengthen relationships.
BREAD Society has established 1146 Children’s Libraries up to December 2018. Donors can select a govt. school of their choice to establish a library. If the choice is left to BREAD Society, it selects a high school securing 5 or more NMMS awards or an Upper Primary school with 3 or more NMMS awards in a year. It felicitates teachers responsible for NMMS awards and gives prizes to students for best reviews on books.
