Progress Report of BREAD Libraries

BREAD has established 148 new libraries in 2021-22 adding up to a total of 1,660 libraries in 13 years. It has also replenished its existing libraries with 50 new books in 2021-22.

BREAD is glad to inform all its donors that GlobalGiving Foundation has spared no effort to get the clearance from FCRA division of Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India to get the permission to disburse funds to Indian Partners. As an alternative, GlobalGiving Foundation has suggested that Indian Partners may try to find financial sponsors based in USA through whom it could transfer donations. BREAD identified a financial sponsor. After due process, GlobalGiving has transferred $7415.15 to it on 25th December 2021. BREAD has received the backlog of all donations made from May 2019 to November 2021 in January 2022.

BREAD has ensured that the delay in funds reaching us does not affect the establishment of the libraries or the replenishment of books in these libraries. This we did by drawing on reserves with special permission of the board of BREAD.

BREAD is keenly looking forward to the next few months as the schools have re-opened and there are various initiatives and efforts of the Government to re-invigorate reading habits. The Government has initiated a programme called “100 days of reading”, where the students are issued books to take home and read. We have observed a renewed interest in BREAD library’s with more schools asking for library’s and books. We hope to continue to make a difference in these efforts to provide every child with access to books to read.

BREAD is taking active part in mobilizing resources for its project through GlobalGiving Foundation’s Little by Little campaign from 4th April at 00:00:00 EDT to April 8, 2022, at 23:59:59 EDT (9.30 AM on 4th April to 9.30 AM on 9th April IST).
