Our Books Reach the E-Base Library in the Pench Tiger Reserve

The Pench Tiger Reserve has a brand new library - thanks to the folks at Conservation Wildlands Trust. And we were happy to hear that many of our books are also available at the library.

Via the e-base blog
The E-Base library is a humble attempt to open up the world of books to the students of Pench. The importance of reading for a holistic education cannot be discounted and the E-Base library strives to fill this gap that exists by bringing to the students books from all around the world. With a choice of books on biodiversity, science, environmental conservation, Gondi folktales and encyclopedias, in both, Hindi and English, the library not only augments their general awareness and knowledge of their surroundings and its relation to the world but also inculcates an appreciation for their rich Gondi roots.

This is the first time the students from this region have had a library at their doorstep!
Thank you, Pratham Books, for making this library project see the light of day through your fantastic and very economic books. There truly is a book in every child's hands!
