Although 96.5% percent of children in India are officially enrolled in school, half of them cannot read. .

Libraries are important to a child's progress in the classroom. Most Indian children can’t afford books of their own and therefore can’t practice their reading skills outside the school. Pratham provides these desperately needed resources.

Their objective is to ensure that all children in every neighborhood have access to books to practice reading, improve their skills and move onto the next level of learning. At a Pratham library, children from low-income families can access colorful and interesting books in their own languages as well as in English.
