The students of SAI International School celebrated ‘Daan Utsav’ or Joy of Giving Week by installing a library in the Bugin Ho Siksha Kendra at Godibari in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar on Friday, October 6, 2017.
Enthusiastic students of SAI collected and arranged more the 500 books in Odia, English and Hindi in neat rows in closed steel racks. To develop a love for reading among the tribal students, a story reading session was held where the English version of the story ‘Dear Tyrannosaurus Rex’ was read, followed by a translation in Odia. The students of both schools had a wonderful time singing and dancing together.
Every year the SAI family celebrates the philanthropic week under different projects to bring a meaningful change in the environment of the less privileged students. This year it was celebrated through the ‘100 Library Project’, to provide infrastructural support in a bid to develop a love for reading. The project to install 100 libraries in less privileged schools was initiated in the year 2015 to provide students with a wider information landscape through an easy access to a variety of books.
