Going to School in India - Mini-Books for Children

by Going to School Fund
Jan 12, 2011

Children's responses after reading the mini books

We send out Going to School in India mini books to schools with self addressed and stamped postcards. After reading the books children write down what they liked about the book on the postcards and post it to us. Children's responses help us understand the impact of the books and we are also able to monitor the use of these books in schools.

By now we have a collection of postcards from children all across India. The feedback in this report are from children in Northern Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh living in villages and small towns. The children from Madhya Pradesh belong to a tribal community and have only recently started going to school and most of the children wrote that the stories motivated them to continue going to school and to complete their education. 

Please see attached pdf for children's reactions.
