Free Textbooks for Students
Via The Hindu
A Book Bank Project for pre-university students, organised by Rajasthan Youth Association, got under way here on Sunday wherein a full set of the prescribed textbooks was provided to deserving students from the economically weaker sections of society.
The students are expected to use the books till they finish their examinations and later return them. Only meritorious students with an aggregate of about 65 per cent, qualify to avail themselves of the books.The students who were selected for the project were a relieved lot. “My father is a security guard and earns just enough to sustain the family. Something like this encourages me to study hard and also prepare myself for higher studies,” said Revanna M., a student of a college near Yelahanka.
