The Stationary Box: A Little Can do a lot

The Stationary Box: A Little Can do a lot

 

The stationery box is an initiative taken by Aastha Nishtha Foundation. Every child deserves new stationery like new notebooks, stationary box, reading books etc. but it only remains a dream for underprivileged and marginalized children to afford such things. This project will contribute in development of society as a noble cause. It will also create awareness about the importance of education of children using social media as a powerful tool.
