To inculcate the habit of reading among students from rural and tribal India, AIM for Seva in association with Pratham organised the ‘One Day, One Story’ event to coincide with World Literacy Day (8th September 2021) across some of its Chatralayams in India.
Story books were shared with the students in English and other regional languages (Tamil, Hindi, Marathi and Kannada). Students from our Chatralayams in Amboli, Belgaum, Chikhali, Dehradun, Dhandhuka, Karnaprayag, Shivane Maval, Srinagar and Sembangudi read out the stories aloud. Some of them also enacted a few scenes from the tales. The books read out by the students were Satya, Watch Out by Deepanjana Pal and Puchku Seeks a Song by Yamini Vijayan for the young readers.
The idea of this programme was to encourage students to fall in love with reading.
