Library Love in Lucknow!

Look what popped into our inbox the other day! Our STEM libraries getting a whole lot of love in Lucknow. Last year, several organizations across India applied to receive our STEM library kit grant. Sarthak Foundation was one of these organizations. Sarthak's vision is to add significance to the lives of the underprivileged children by providing quality education. The Sarthak team sent us these pictures of the latest library installed in their Ismailganj Study Centre, Lucknow. This centre caters to the rag picker community they work with.







What is a STEM Classroom Library Kit?

The kit is a wall-mounted modular library unit that can be put up in any classroom or library. It consists of 100+ books, primarily in STEM subjects. The books cover a diverse range of topics in Maths, Science, Technology, Environment, and Emotional intelligence. Some of our colourful books are: How Far is Far (estimation of distances), I Spy (subtraction), Bonda and Devi (robots), Ammachi’s Amazing Machines (simple machines and their use), AutumnMonsoonSpringSummer and Winter (seasons of India), Up World, Down World (biodiversity of canopy forests), A Cloud of Trash (Cleanliness), A Helping Hand (inclusivity and accepting differences), Reethi and Mithu, Angry Akku (handling emotions).

This library grant has been supported by Oracle.
