Thought I shall dedicate this post to Aham Bhumika. Have been seeing their tweets and the least I could do was an RT. Today I saw a request from them to re-post the following on blogs.
‘Aham Bhumika’ is an NGO, a group of like minded people based in Bhopal, a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. The diverse group consists of artists, housewives, engineers, tourist guides, teachers and government employees.
Gift a book to our library of rural childrenAhambhumika, working with the rural children in village Borda, Bhopal intends to set up a small library for the rural children. For these children, having a story book is a luxury.
We need people willing to support us in this initiative.The books and magazines discarded by your children will be of immense use to our children.
What we need : 1. We need books in Hindi and English. 2. The books need to be on the topic of interest of children who are in the age group of 4 to 14 years.3.
