Going to School in a Mud Desert

What is it like to go to school where you go to school?

This is a question that children ask each other when they meet around the world. It's also a question that children ask each other in India. What is it like to go to school in Kashmir, on a lake? In Tamil Nadu, by the sea? In Gujarat, in the middle of a Mud Desert? 

Going to School in India mini books are meant for children age 8+ to celebrate what it is like to go to school in India and be inspired. To learn through activities that are relevant to where children live, to be able to learn about other children.

Since Going to School in India was published 9 years ago, Going to School Mini Books in regional languages have been distributed to over five million children in 45,000 Government Primary Schools. The stories have also been incorporated in national curriculum.

To go to school and be inspired is a gift, a story helps children believe they can make it come true.
