Pratham Books works closely with NGO partners involved in children’s education. If you wish, you could start these little readers on the exciting journey of reading by pledging books for their libraries.
Since we produce books in 10 Indian languages, suitable for various age groups, we will send them beautiful story books appropriate for their readers. We ship to every corner of India including Nagaland, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Kashmir.
The books you pledge will be distributed in libraries in government schools and slum areas, and also as prizes for under-privileged children who have just begun to read, and for top-performing students in government schools.
Click here to pledge 75 books for Rs 2250.

You could choose to use it as return gifts for birthday parties, or better still give it to the children of your maid, or your driver – who will love to have a story book in a local language.
