Agaaram is a Sanskrit word which literally means a library.
We all are familiar with the importance of education.
To put it blatantly it wouldn’t have been possible for us to run a medium such as this had we not been avid readers and introduced to so many schools of thoughts and beliefs.
Stories always gave us hope. Though varied characters, places, weathers, emotions and set in different time periods stories are what move us and make us admit to ourselves that truly anything is possible!
However the harsh reality is that for many of us even buying books is not economically possible. And we aren’t just talking about books to read for leisure or interest but even the ones needed in an educational module.
Which is why The Feminist Times is launching Project AGAARAM. Through this initiative anyone can come forward and donate their books. These can be literature, classics, fiction, non-fiction, course books, etc. For each book you donate we will also donate a book, going parallel to the number of books you donate, we donate. These books will be donated to schools in remote areas. We’re proud to share with you that we kickstarted the project in March by successfully donating the first set of books to Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls School, Rajasthan- an initiative by CITTA. And we’re now pledging to help build a library for school girls.
