Deshpande Foundation Koutilya Fellows Collect 700 books for the community

You cannot open a book without learning something.”

Deshpande Foundation’s Koutilya Fellowship Cohort 7F, 8, and 8A Fellows took the initiative (on November 16th, 2014) to collect unused books from people's homes to be utilized as resources for students, staff, and other people who would better appreciate them. Many people have neglected books in their homes, and these 70 Fellows thought that these books should be collected to be better used by the community. They organized themselves into groups and went to colleges, hostels and homes around Vidyanagar and Ashya Colony) on the hunt for unused books. After facing challenges such as difficulties convincing people, and even a home dog attack, they strived on their leadership and teamwork and managed to collect 700 books in only 6 hours. Fuelled by their success, they are aiming to collect 2,000 books next time.
