  • Title: Welcome to A & A Book Trust - What's New
    Descriptive info: Welcome to A & A Book Trust - What's New.. New Year Party 2014.. New year s eve was gray and snowy white.. We were glad to clothe our children in warm woollies, thanks to Raija Stolbow (Finland), Maria Coelho (Goa) and Tineke Van der Svelt (Netherlands).. We brought in the new year with a party for 58 children and adults in the sun.. The children sang and danced merrily and the adults shook their booties! There were whole lot of goodies and laughter to share!!.. Warming up for Winter 2013.. Many thanks to our friends who responded to our appeal for warm clothes for the Shitala children!! Our three young volunteers Deepa, Anandi & Geeta helped children choose.. We could provide warm clothes to more than 35 children in Shitala who really have to brave strong winter in Shitala.. Many thanks to Archana Khanna, Manasi Joshi, and Scholastic family!! Our warmest thanks go to Raija Stolbow for sending us real warm caps and socks for the children all the way from Finland!!.. Could there be a happier occasion for a book-lover?.. Students and teachers of Z P School Jamgaon, Maharashtra, had a surprise waiting for them on this independence day.. A & A Book Trust presented them a cartonful of happy, cheerful books which were distributed among the children and you can read the sheer joy on their faces!!.. Maja Comes to India.. In 2012, the modern German classic,.. The Adventures of Maja the Bee.. by the author Waldemar Bonsels, celebrated its 100 birthday.. This has Maya a fun-loving, adventurous little bee as the central character, and she is out to discover the big world all by herself.. In German families, Maja has a special place in the hearts of grown ups and the children alike.. The book has been translated into several languages of the world and is now we present a hindi translation which was launched in collaboration with the Goethe Institute, New Delhi and the Nehru World School, Ghaziabad.. AABT Scholarships.. One very important stumbling block in the educational growth is parents ability to pay for it.. We had decided to pay for the further education of mainly the girls in the region.. We will start a regular process of inviting applications and screening these for 2012-13.. But we did make a very deserving beginning this year..  ...   of.. We do hope that this goes a long way in changing a few lives in the foreseeable future!!.. World Girl-Child Picture Books Project: A Concept Note.. In a typical Indian situation, the gender inequality is still at work especially in the way parents look at the girl child.. Through years of social conditioning, the female child is generally perceived as a burden on her parents' resources whereas the male child is celebrated as the for reasons rooted in age old social conditioning.. Despite the legal machinery in place i.. right to equal opportunity, and now, right to education, the girl child is often discriminated against, at times subtly and more often than that openly.. This needs to change.. To play a role in bringing about a change in the thinking of both the family and the girl child herself, A&A Books has taken up a pilot project to introduce a series of picture books with girl child at their nucleus, effectively reflecting that gender-based discrimination is unfair, and certainly not the way forward.. Work Plan:.. The original goal for 2011-12 was to publish a set of 12 picture books in Hindi, and English focusing on the girl child to address the families both in cities and small towns.. Owing to the overwhelming response especially the support from organisations like FILI (Finland), Norla (Norway), NPVFL (Netherlands), VFL (Belgium) the number of books will be 24.. Do stay tuned with our website to catch up with us on the books coming out every month.. The books have contemporary themes, and thus easier to relate to.. The objective is to creatively give this sensitive message, drawing on the world talent.. Having the books from different cultures also provide universal acceptance of the fact that girl child is an equal, globally.. The books will be translated into various languages of India, with respective co-publishers, and also for specific need-based requirements.. The books will all be in paperback, and the cover price for each of the titles will be around Rs 60.. An effort will be made to share this project with as many organisations as possible within and outside the country, at different stages of its development, to create a network of inputs, for selection, and also sponsorships for the Hindi edition.. We will welcome ideas for co-publishing in different languages for this project!!..

  • Title: Welcome to A & A Book Trust - Reading Corners
    Descriptive info: Welcome to A & A Book Trust - Reading Corners.. Books Have the Power to Change Lives.. Can you really imagine your life, especially childhood without books?.. Even we can't, so we set up Reading Corners!!.. What is a Reading Corner?.. A Reading Corner is the first basic library in the village primary school which has no access to a library or a bookshop.. In many village families, the children are the first generation learners, affording education only because it's free.. The Reading Corner has a selection of age-appropriate, attractive books, carefully selected to initiate the children into enjoying books.. Promising a lot of shared fun, the Reading Corner is the rural child's window to the world, widening the mental horizon.. Our Reading Corner kit comprises:.. One hundred select books covering a range of topics, both fiction and non-fiction.. The books are selected by a committee of expert consultants keeping the interests and needs of the children in mind.. Four posters for encouraging children to read.. A colourful nylon rope to hang the books on.. In 2009-10, we started with Reading Corners set up in 112 primary schools, mainly in Uttarakhand.. The number went up to 128 schools looked after by Chirag, an NGO working for decades for development of the region, 25 Sandhya Kendras and 35 libraries started by USNPSS, an NGO in Almorah to engage children in fruitful activities after school, and some schools associated by Pahar ( Nainital) and Arohi school, Satkhol.. Due to the apathy of the state government we stopped our book donations to 26 Kasturba Gandhi Kanya Vidyalayas which offer hostel facilities for girls coming from rural areas.. The villages are hungry for books, we had started with a set of 100 books in 2009 and we need  ...   village community so that the parents and grandparents understand the importance of the Reading Corner.. We have a step-by-step plan to add new books to the Reading Corners for the years to come, and before we know, each of these villages will have a small library of its own, for the children as well as the adults!.. What can you do to join us in our effort?.. Friends, this is all about doing our own bit! The children in villages are hungry for books.. You can see this in the pictures on our website.. You can also see it for yourself if you plan a visit / travel with us to the schools.. Imagine, as little as 65 or US $100 is enough to set up a Reading Corner in a village school, which will gives a chance to children to read and enter the enriching world of books, and change their lives.. One reading corner touches lives of at least 300-350 families.. If you believe in the power of books like we do, please help us set up a Reading Corner in a school of your choice, in India.. In case you have no particular school in mind, we will identify one for you.. We will make sure that you get some pictures of the Reading Corner, and the children enjoying reading and also share the feedback from the school.. Give us a month in your life, staying at Shitala! There's so much to do.. If you are a specialist, you can employ the skills for empowering the teachers, broadening their vision and professional skills.. Be on our expert's and volunteers panel, and help us hold workshops for teachers/students sharing your skills.. If you have the inclination we will create a role for you..

We are absolutely thrilled to share the news of 4 girls scholars selected for support!! Imagine, with the recently announced more than 150% fee hike, these girls would be taken out of the school, because their parents don t afford to cope with the raise.. We stepped in, just in time and now they are back in school, till their 10th/12th class.. Divya Kapil, now a class 3 student, walks 8-9 kms everyday to go to Kendriya Vidyalaya, Mukteshwar from her village Chhataula..
