I-READ Community Book Club
I-Read community Book club was founded in September 2018 as one of the offshoot projects of the prestigious MY BARIGA MY PRIDE (a community focused) initiative. Since its inception, MY BARIGA MY PRIDE has challenged the body polity by the monthly reading sessions which largely helped to ebb the menace of ignorance and consequentially growing mental development. i-Read Community Book club seeks to redress the lackluster attitude towards reading of books and other useful materials needed by the children in the community. The children and teenager segment of the book club with a growing number of over 80 students has been met with amazing results going by the feedbacks from their teachers and parents. The book club helps to assert the known fact that ‘Readers are Leaders’.
