E-Base Library: A reality now, and still growing!

May 14, 2014 • Posted in: E-Base Library, News, Workshops

We are touched by the overwhelming munificence shown towards the E-Base Library campaign.

Having reached 104% of the target, we feel content on the achievement, but also hopeful towards aggrandizing our impact by raising more funds to replicate the E-base library idea in Pench Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra. Two sides of the same forest, but kilometers apart in different states. We hope that you continue to show us the kind support you have up till now and help us raise another Rs. 70,000 for the children of an even more remote side of Pench, in Maharashtra..

Just to revisit the moment we crossed our target, here is a before and after snapshot of the website:

The excitement on having crossed the target!

For those who wish to contribute to our campaign, #EbasePench, and help set up another library, you may do so on:

If you would like ot send over your old, used books as additions to our library, please contact Pooja Choksi on pooja@conservationwildlands.org

Looking forward to reaching Rs. 1,40,000 only with your loving support!

(The E-Base library is a humble attempt to open up the world of books to the students of Pench. The importance of reading for a holistic education cannot be discounted and the E-Base library strives to fill this gap that exists by bringing to the students books from all around the world. With a choice of books on biodiversity, science, environmental conservation, Gondi folktales and encyclopedias, in both, Hindi and English, the library not only augments their general awareness and knowledge of their surroundings and its relation to the world but also inculcates an appreciation for their rich Gondi roots.)
