Going to School books to more schools in Delhi

Going to School in India


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.


  1. Going to School on a Mountain Top
  2. Going to School in a Tribe
  3. Going to School in the Dark
  4. Going to School in the Middle of a Lake
  5. Going to School in a Tent
  6. Going to School on Wheels
  7. Going to School in a Temple
  8. Going to School under a Mango Tree
  9. Going to School by the Sea
  10. Going to School on a Railway Station Platform


Target Audience: Children age 8 to 14


Print Run: GTS printed 1000 sets of mini books in Hindi.



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.
