The mobile library will be in the form of an Asha kaithi volunteer traveling to few villages in the area in a week to expand the reach of books to children of migrant laborers who work in brick kilns in the area.
The on-site library will be at the Asha Trust office where a separate room will be stocked with books. This is only meant to serve as a back up as the Asha Trust center is primarily an administrative office and not actively frequented by students.
The book bank will supply books to certain selected schools in the varanasi area. These are mostly govt schools that Asha Kaithi works with with the help of another independent NGO
Asha Trust works to catalyze socio-economic change in India through the education of underprivileged children.
Asha Trust is the India arm of Asha for Education (US) with similar vision & mission
