A Mobile Library goes to poor children staying in slums/nearby villages, with the objective of creating interest in children for learning, reading and motivating them to attend school. A bus/ van is used as a mobile library. The vehicle carries varieties of books/magazines/newspapers. Materials for indoor/outdoor games, materials for drawing /painting and items for first-aid. The van has 2 facilitators and a driver. We have 4 vans for 16 Bastis. Each Basti gets visited 8 times a month for four hours in the evening. Around 130-150 children are enrolled in each Basti, of which 80-90 come to the library during every visit. The mobile library facilitators read out and issue books to the children, and play games with them. When a particular child does not come to the library for a long period they visit the child's home and encourage them to come regularly. Project Name for this Donation is: QUEST- Qualitative universalization of education and school transformation. This project helps in achieving the below goals:1.Increasing access and interest towards books and reading material 2.Improvement in language competency of regular mobile library users. (A regular user being a child who issues at least 1-2 books every month since last 3 months).

A Library for the slum children
Being a tribal belt, a large percentage of children in the rural/slum areas are either drop out or not attending the school and engaged in petty/unskilled jobs or farm work
The Mobile library selected four areas and visit particular spots of these areas on regular basis from 4 pm to 8 pm, motivating the parents to send their children to schools, keeping the children engaged in drawing/painting/different games and also providing books/journals/newspapers to read.
This created a platform for interaction with these children and their parents, motivating them to attend schools and learning. It also helped the children to develop reading/learning habit to improve knowledge, creating team spirit, discipline and acquint them with general hygenic matters/first-aid etc.
