Hindustan Times launches programme for underprivileged childrenApril 19th, 2012 - 9:21 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) English daily newspaper Hindustan Times said Thursday it has launched an initiative which will help in education of over 1 million underprivileged children in the national capital region.
As part of the “You Read, They Learn” initiative launched on April 18, Hindustan Times has committed to contributing 5 paise from every metro copy in Delhi-NCR for the scheme, Hindustan Times said in a statement.
To build on that initiative, Hindustan Times printed a beginner’s textbook in every copy of the newspaper in Delhi-NCR Thursday.
In line with the initiative’s mission to help educate underprivileged children, every page of the newspaper includes a page of a textbook. Following three simple steps, readers can cut out these pages, staple them together to form a textbook and then share it with an underprivileged child, it said.
In addition, there will be textbooks inserted in copies of Mint and Hindustan circulated in Delhi-NCR.
“Through this simple and powerful idea, readers will be able to reach out to over 1 million children in Delhi-NCR on a single day and help them take their first step towards an education,” the newspaper said.
