The Library Resource Project
“Reading For All” aims to provide library resources for the children from Kolkata’s streets and slums. They will have access to storybooks, school texts and a safe place to learn and read. Many of these children are the first generation of their families to go to school and most have no books of their own. The libraries will help them discover the joy of reading, benefit their schooling and encourage their future learning.

The funds help provide activities, reading, creativity and leadership skills. CINI teaches children about their rights to education and to protection from exploitation.
CINI Australia’s “Reading For All” was initiated in Australia’s National Year of Reading, 2012, recognising the importance of literacy and access to books for our children.
In Australia our children have a good education and an abundance of resources. Our children have beautiful books in our libraries from preschool to university. We experience the joy of reading and have a doorway to knowledge.
