Gift a Book and Get a Friend’ is a collaborative social responsibility programme conceived under school’s social responsibility initiative, “Library-Social Connect”, launched in 2013. The title itself effectively summarizes why this initiative is being followed. Rather than giving a financial contribution or donation, the school plans a long-term relationship by forging friendships through the mutual love for books. In addition to helping children in schools that lack a well-stocked library to get access to the world of literature, the programme also sensitizes the Readers’ Club members to social reality beyond the school walls.

The first edition of the programme was held at Government Upper Primary School, Palkulangara on December 6, 2013. The programme is being organized every academic year with a new school. The schools so far covered are Government Upper Primary School, Ulloor (2014), Government Lower Primary School Pettah (2016), and Government High School Mannanthala (2017). More than 500 good quality new and used Malayalam and English books were collected form students and staff of Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom. All students of the partnering school were presented with book packets and which also contains gifts like note books, sweets, writing materials, cards and toys.

To add colour to the occasion, the members of the Readers’ Club of KV Pattom and UPS Kumarapuram jointly presented a cultural session which includes presentation of songs, book reviews, poems, skits, quizzes and games. There was free and open interaction through mutual sharing of experiences that has helped the students of both schools to become more confident in confronting the social realities and develop compassion towards the needy. The connections made with the partnering school through the programme will be kept intact for future through more collaborative initiatives such as sharing of resources, teacher exchange programmes and redesigning or resource development of the school library.

Mr S. L. Faisal, KV Pattom Librarian & Coordinator proposed vote of thanks.
