MangoSense, a Pune based start-up, have taken the initiative to spread the awareness for reading. Today, more than 200 million children in India cannot read because of either lack of proper resources or because they lack the initiative to read. As a technology company that is also passionate about education, MangoSense knew something had to be done about it. So to contribute to the cause in a small way, they will be reading across India for all of June – 30 states, with a minimum of 5 volunteers in each state reading for anywhere from 1 to 20 hours throughout the month.
Sponsors for the event are welcomed and anyone who wants to partner or volunteer (be a HERO) are invited to join the cause. Punekars can help in the following ways:
- Donate money (100% of the proceeds will be used to fund books, devices, materials for the campaign)
- Donate devices – (This will be passed on to champions on your behalf)
- Participate in the league and read with us. Read for 20 hours with minimum 20 kids in 50 days and you can be a champion, MangoT20 champions will receive lot of cool stuff. No worries if you cant commit to 20 hours of reading in the month, read to kids for any amount of time, you will still be a hero!
