After the session, send us a short write-up or send us some photos from the event and we will feature it on the champions blog.
Note : For logisitical reasons, we can’t ship books to international destinations, but we will be able to share the PDF of the book with any international volunteers.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will the book be sent for free or does the champion pay for it?
Answer : The book is sent to you for free.
2. Does the champion have to find the venue?
Answer : Yes. Identify places where you can conduct this event in your city – A government school, an NGO, a library, a bookstore, a park, a train, your building…any place with regular kids footfalls. Approach the organization and explain the concept to them. Most of them will be happy to host you.
3. This is the first time I am conducting an event. How should I prepare for it?
Answer : Read the book a few times. If you are reading to a younger age-group, see how you can tell the story without actually reading the book (to retain their attention). Think of activities that you can do after the storytelling to engage the children (example : can the story take on a skit form, can the story be a way to talk about an important issue, etc).
4. Can i conduct multiple events?
Answer : Definitely!!! The aim is to reach as many kids as possible. We’ve had champions who’ve conducted 2-3 sessions on the main day and then gone on to conduct sessions on other days too.
5. Should I document the event?
Answer : We expect all our Champions to send us some documentation about the event conducted by them. They can send us mini videos, pictures or a write-up on the event which will tell us [and the whole wide world] on the “real impact” made. (P.S- all the images in this post are of actual storytelling sessions conducted by our awesome champions).
