101 kids’ plans were selected according to whether the ideas were well-researched, sustainable, green, inclusive, used clean energy, and solved a big problem that would change their school for everyone. These kids then pitched their business ideas at the Pitch It event held on 23rd April, 2017 in Nalanda, Bihar.

50 out of 100 schools have received grants to action the kids’ plans. Very excitingly, 50 schools also have a chance to win their own Library Kits from Pratham Books. And for this, Going to School needs your help.
“The stories created by Pratham Books are set in environments that kids are familiar with, cover a range of genres, and are beautifully illustrated, making books all the more fun to read. If our young entrepreneurs have to keep the momentum going, it will become imperative that they read as much as possible, to expand their mind and know that they can achieve anything, take on any problem, and solve them,” says Lisa.”
21 libraries have already been funded. Any amount donated helps the chools get closer to owning their own library.
