I was there!
March 11, 2018

It was two years or more ago, that a friend of ours at Bookworm suggested we take stories and books to a boys home. This,  like most of our work was a new idea and deserved consideration. So, we began tentatively to explore the possibility.  We scheduled a date and time and began. We need […]

When they aspire and inspire
March 8, 2018

Stories about people are always interesting. All the more when it’s about hard work, determination, passion, overcoming struggles and doing extraordinary work or service. Such stories have a lasting impression on our minds-inspiring and motivating us to be determined in life and realise that success comes through perseverance. NT BUZZ gathers a few stories of […]

The Leading Ladies
March 8, 2018

Women are the helm of every field which affects their families directly or indirectly. Though many may not come out in the open to show their strength, there are those who make a difference by voicing out their concerns loud and clear to bring about social change. In Goa, many women social activists have brought […]

I work with an NGO, Bookworm, whose mission is to encourage reading in children. Hence, a library is the foundation of all the work that they do. The only children’s books I have read are from the era of Enid Blyton, Amar Chitra Kathas, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. Perhaps some William, Billy Bunter and […]

Learning through questions
February 21, 2018

This New Year, questions about how children could manage school, tuition classes, house chores and still manage to come to the library sessions, were at the back of my mind. Would books more closely related to their school subjects, satisfy their conceptual needs for academics, as well as draw more children into the world of […]

Children’s Library unconference 2018
February 18, 2018

Written by Joanne Saldanha The excitement started in late December, when an email from Sujata bore news of the Children’s Library unConference 2018.
