Neil Gaiman once said, “A book is a dream you hold in your hand”. Indeed it is true that books are dreams held in our hands. A book is a world in itself. It helps to bind thoughts together, help create newer perceptions and such. A book is a treasure for anyone, especially children. Books are not the only source by which they can get educated but it is also the source that serves to inspire them to dream. At Abinta Kabir Foundation, we have launched schools to educate the less privileged children of our country. It is our motive to give them quality education so that they can grow up to be responsible citizens and bring a change to their own lives. It also is our motive to inspire them to dream and broaden their minds. Keeping respect to that, the foundation has recently organized a book drive campaign to gather books for the children.
The goal of the campaign is to gather donations of new and gently used children’s books ranging in level from kindergarten to fourth grade, of varying topics and genres. These books go directly to students at the Abinta Kabir Foundation Schools, enabling them to develop a reading habit and enjoy reading.
The book drive campaign has commenced from 1st of June, 2017 and will continue till 31st of July, 2017. Book donations are being accepted at the following locations in Dhaka:
- Lavender Super Store Ltd. 30/2, 30/3, Progoti Shoroni, Shahjadpur, Dhaka. Helpline (of Lavender): 01730728994
