My School, My Pride/ Notebook Distribution



The annual notebook distribution drive, a unique longitudinal program has evolved as a flagship initiative of Aviratha. This program is part of the Aviratha’s larger involvement in value addition to primary education and infrastructure development of schools. Following are salient features of the program.

Who are beneficiaries?

How are books provided?

In January of every year, Aviratha begins a survey of potential beneficiaries and calculates required resources. Beneficiaries are notified about the intervention prior hand through school teachers. In following July, teams consisting of volunteers delivery books directly to every child in their schools.

How many have benefited so far?

In academic year 2014-15, Aviratha provided books and stationery to about 1,20,000 children across 140 schools. Dependent on donations, about 20,000 new students have being added annually. Once included, no school till date has been left in following years of the program.

How is the program funded?

The program is largely dependent on public donations raised annually. Corporate entities also donate in larger values and are acknowledged on wrappers of note books.
