  Government rural schools: Reading room programme
Since August 2004, Peace Child India has chosen 50 Government rural schools, in a structured plan to improve infrastructure. The idea is that with better books, reading rooms and toilets, student attendance and attention will improve, and better access to library and playtime resources will improve the quality of education in these targeted schools.
The idea is to document the changes we've noticed and then petition the Government, with its vast resources to provide what we as a small organisation with limited resources and volunteer help have been able to provide.
The reading room programme is an important aspect of the Government rural schools initiative, establishing a space for the children's creativity and imagination and providing a foothold into the school for further work there. To date, Peace Child India has established a successful reading room in 25 schools.
