A few months ago, our friend Chintan Girish Modi brought our attention to a project called ‘Peace Shelf’ being run by STEP Trust. STEP Trust was looking for book donations that would go to the Library of Lalpuithluaii Foundation School, Churachandpur Manipur.
When asked about the project, Shreya Jani said :
STEP Trust has been working with this school for 2 years starting with doing workshops for teachers and students and now conducting peace education classes for 6 months everyday from classes 5 -10 and teacher training as well. Being cut off from the mainland access to good sensitive reading material which fosters curiosity, openness and sparks the imagination is limited. Thus, we decided to initiate a shelf in their library called the peace shelf which can give them access to such books.
And, thus 300 of our books made our way to the peace shelves being created in the Lalpuithluaii Foundation School library. Thank you STEP Trust!
