The new girls in our class used to not talk at all; they were always quiet, but from the time Didi and Bhaiyya started coming, they have started interacting a lot and they don’t keep quiet even for a while now.

Bhaiyya & Didi taught us how to maintain library, reading, and how reading is important so thanks so much.
We received some books from Share A Book, India (Association) and from the day we started using these books or whenever we enter the classrooms now, the kids look at us with curiosity realising that today they will get to learn something new and different to learn and read.
