Let's READ - Support Children of Migrant Construction Workers
Let's READ is United Way Mumbai's campaign to reach out to 5000 underprivileged children and provide them with the opportunity to experience the joy of reading. Read More...
Children who read are likely to have:
-Higher cognitive functioning
-Better communication skills
-Improved academic performance
-The capacity to self learn
-And a broader perspective and world view
How incredible it is that you can help a child have all of this simply by gifting her a set of books!
It would take just 500 rupees for us to introduce the magic and wonder of books to a young child at a construction site. Once the children are gifted books, their teachers will be trained in how to make the books come alive and the children would attend book reading sessions with professional authors.
Mumbai Mobile Creches does excellent work with children who have very little to call their own. Let's help them gift books to 50 young readers and open up a world of possibilities.
Mumbai Mobile Creches runs daycare centres across Mumbai city, inside construction sites for children of migrant construction workers. Their education programme aims to prepare children for school, focusing on providing basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills, along with after school care, if needed. The aim is to ensure that children are given the necessary support so that they do not drop out of the educational system.
Your support can ensure that these bright minds can enjoy the uplifting experience of reading a book.
Target: 1100 Children. 12 Mini-Libraries. 7300 Books.
