Description: Going to School books are a celebration of what school can be.
10 mini books tell the story of going to school in India through the eyes of a child who goes to school in places as unusual as a mud desert, in the dark, on a mountaintop and by a wheelchair.

Now we aim to reach over 100 schools in Delhi. These will be private aided or unaided schools. The monthly fee for these low-cost private schools is really minimal and most children living in slums attend these schools. By sending books to these schools we will be able to reach a group of children we have not been able to reach ever before.
