There is a huge gap between rural and urban literacy rates in Alwar district of Rajasthan. Around 25 % males and whopping 60% females are illiterate in rural Alwar, which is lowest in India for rural areas.
Rays of Hope
Our vision is of a world in which underprivileged and deprived rural children, youth and women through a network of information and knowledge join the mainstream of the society which could cater to the holistic needs and aspirations of the community as a whole and show them the way forward.
“Address the need of rural children and youth with the purpose to read and learn better.”
The people directly benefiting from the assistance to the Community Library would be rural children, students, women and men and school teachers. The benefits would lead to their empowerment.
A small Community Library is presently operational in a dedicated space at Vijay Mandir, Behror Road, Alwar, Rajasthan to meet the learning needs of the children and students of around 10-15 neighbouring villages. The library is open from eight in the morning till seven in the evening.
This library has a collection of about 927 books. Newspapers in English and Hindi as well as magazines on health, computers, sports, general knowledge, etc., are provided to help the rural youth to stay connected with the outside world. Employment News as well as other employment related information is also provided.
The library has a dedicated Librarian Mr.Kallu Khan r/o Village & Post Office Chandoli, Alwar, Rajasthan.
SAPNA seek books for rural children and youth from Room to Read for the Community Library at Vijay Mandir, Alwar (Rajasthan). Besides a reading section, it is desired to build an IT and Audio-Visual section for screening of educational documentaries.
