End Reading Poverty Now

Get ready to immerse yourself in a celebration of literature and books at our annual flagship program organized by SABIA. Kitab Utsav brings together children and young reading enthusiasts from different cities, fostering a shared love for reading. This literary festival not only offers a diverse selection of books but also features games, food, and exciting activities for attendees to enjoy. By participating in the book sale fundraiser, you contribute to our mission of establishing libraries for underprivileged children nationwide. In addition, we provide small-scale businesses with an opportunity to showcase their products at affordable prices.

STORIES FROM
SABIA

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.

Student at
Shivam Vidya Mandir

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.
