Our Library Concept
Having identified that children from rural areas do not have adequate access to books, CandleAid launched its library programme in 1995 to supply books and other necessary items to schools, temples and community centres mostly in remote villages. Seeing the success of this programme, CandleAid widened the scope of the programme specially encouraged by the number of individuals, institutions and private companies that came forward to support this cause.
1. General Library
CandleAid has responded to many requests made by many rural schools, temples and community centres to establish a library to give mostly their children and even adults the ability to read books. Most of the people who use these libraries are from very low income families.
