If you are in Delhi and have books to share, please donate your books at any of the Full Circle bookstores mentioned above. The books will be donated to a library at a Girl's Shelter Home. The folks at Full Circle Books sent us an email to tell us more about the Girl's shelter home:
Arushi the first girl child shelter of Salaam Baalak Trust which came into existence on 4th October 1999 with the support of USAID and FHI (family health International). It started with 5 girls in a rented space in West Delhi. Today after 11 successful years we have benefited almost 886 children with shelter, education-366, medical assistance, psycho- social support, 108 were provided vocational/ hobby trainings and 17 have been placed with jobs. 356 children have so far been reunited with their families.

Presently we have 44 girls in the age group of 5- 18 years. 21 girls are attending formal education at Anantam School & Little Flower School, Rotary public school-Gurgaon, 11 are enrolled in National open school, 11 are in non- formal education, 1 is in graduation level from IGNOU and 2 children with learning disabilities are attending special education at Orkids.

We are now keen to set up a library for these children – we have a small room which will be renovated and books/magazine provided.
