The Tribe of Pratham Books Champions is Growing : Spreading the Joy of Reading

You've probably already read about what our champions did in September, 2011. In case you haven't, click here to read all the stories sent by our champions. Last time, 19 wonderful storytellers signed up to create awareness about International Girl Child Day. 

As the International Year of the Forest draws to a close, we are running the 'Awareness Today for a Greener Tomorrow' campaign. Once again, we asked our AWESOME community if they would be volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions based on the book "A King Cobra's Summer'. And again, our friends volunteered eagerly.

We are pleased to inform you that the tribe of Pratham Books Champions is growing. 28 champions will be giving wings to the story for this event. We have champions from 11 states, 1 union territory and 2 champions from abroad. Imagine the number of children all of them will be reaching out to! Many many many many more children than we could reach out to through one session.
