The Magic of Storytelling!
The COVID-19 outbreak has interrupted schooling for many underprivileged children and is affecting their learning journey. According to UNESCO’s findings, approximately 321 million children are currently out of schools in India.
To address this, we initiated #AStoryADay, which is a COVID response initiative. Storytelling is an art and it helps to develop curiosity and important life skills in a child.
We aim to help children from Government Schools across India to sail through the crisis by keeping them connected and motivated.
Locations – Mumbai, Nashik, Halol(Gujarat), Nagpur, Pune, Jaipur and Jabalpur
