Needy readers

“A book is like a garden, carried in the pocket”


The Needy Readers’ project predominantly focuses on the schools’ without the library facility or the schools’, which have limited number of books in their libraries. Reading is the first step to become a versatile intellect who will out stand from the rest. Knowledge, experience, changes in attitudes acquired from reading books brings an immense value to us.

Nevertheless, there are students who have the desire to read, willing to discover the world with the adventures in books, are underprivileged due to the shortage of good books. IMCD endeavor in facilitating them with the required material, for them to win the world”
