A mother’s passion
Formerly a software engineer, mum of 2 Devaki Bhujang Gajare is today a proud story educator and reading champion. How did this transformation happen?
As a young mum Devaki struggled to raise readers in a digital age. She soon identified the problem - children saw reading as a task, not pleasure! So Devaki began reading to kids around her, bringing stories alive through conversations, art, games and drama.
The little ones were not just hooked, the leap in their socio-emotional and thinking skills amazed parents.
As word spread, other mums and educators joined the cause. What began as a fun home experiment in 2012 blossomed into a beautiful collaborative enterprise empowering over 100 women entrepreneurs, each carrying the Little Readers’ Nook magic to her community.
The initiative has thus grown beyond our wildest dreams since then, challenging over 10000 kids to read, think and express in over 25 cities across India and beyond today.
We’re proud of our vibrant all-women team! Over 50 Women all over the world!
Many of these smart, creative mums, and educators quit brilliant careers - as bankers, lawyers, engineers, managers, teachers, doctors - to devote time to raising our next generation the right way. They bring a special zeal and zest to our offerings at Little Readers’ Nook.
Wouldn’t you be proud too?
