You Read They Learn !!!


There are many people who care for the education of the under-privileged. But when the initiative comes from a bigger, responsible group like Hindustan Times, it does make a difference.

Recently I came across HT’s campaign, called You Read They Learn.

With this initiative, HT wishes to contribute strongly in the space of pre-primary and primary education as we believe that education is every child’s right. HT will contribute 5 paise every day from every Metro copy of Hindustan Times sold in Delhi-NCR towards creating a corpus which will fund the education of over 10,000 children over the year. To begin with, HT is partnering with Pratham Delhi Education Initiative and Child Rights And You (CRY) to utilize the funds for bringing underprivileged children to the classroom. Going forward, HT will also engage with other NGO partners working in this space.  

In line with the initiative’s mission to help educate underprivileged children, every page of the today’s Hindustan Times Delhi-NCR edition includes a page of a textbook. Following three simple steps, readers can cut out these pages, staple them together to form a textbook and then share it with an underprivileged child. 
Isn’t that a great initiative to educate the children of India ??? So, people in Delhi-NCR, remember to buy your copy everyday, so that you can contribute towards this wonderful program.
Here’s an cute little video which stresses the need to educate our children !!! Chk it out !!!
Lets make a difference !!! It doesn’t matter how small our steps are…..the only thing that matters is the effort which we put into it !!!

    Very novel initiative by H.Times. And hopefully once they see this campaign a success, they should extend it to other cities as well. So more people contribute and more children learn.

  10. The idea of printing one textbook page per day is interesting. But instead of cutting it daily and giving a bunch of cut-papers to children, people might want to buy the book directly and give it to underprivileged children.

    Since education is very important, the first initiative of donating to CRY and others is good.
