BREAD Society establishes Children’s libraries in govt. schools in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Library has 600-650 curated books with colorful graphic designs on moral values, history, biographies, epics, culture, science, geography, mathematics, general knowledge, personality development, puzzles, sports etc. The books are age appropriate. Children borrow books to take home. This helps spread of joy of reading beyond the boundary of the school. BREAD libraries are replenished with additional books every year.
This helps improve intra family communications and strengthen relationships. BREAD Society operates on end to end transparency with 100% traceability of funds utilization. Donors get individual feedback reports on the utilization of their funds which give contact numbers of schools where their funds have been utilized. They can directly contact schools to find out how their donations are being utilized.
