“Literacy is the door to knowledge, essential to individual self-esteem and empowerment. Literacy, in all forms, plays an essential role here”.
– Irina Bokova
International Book Giving Day 2018 that falls on 14th February every year was celebrated at Manav Rachna International School, Sec-21C, Faridabad with great enthusiasm. International Book Giving Day is a fabulous idea and a great excuse to pass on that good read, makes a donation and helps someone else enjoy the pleasure of books, because reading really does matter!
Give a Book is a UK based charity with the sole aim of giving books where they will be of particular benefit. Their core belief is to pass on a good read- to give someone a book- is a transaction of worth.
The International Literacy Day was celebrated in a unique way, students exchanged books and gifted books to under privileged children. This heartwarming activity instilled in them the value of sharing and caring. They all went back home feeling very happy.
