DesiKnowledge donates a book with every purchase

To celebrate International Literacy Day, Desi Knowledge, official Amar Chitra Katha partner, doubles its donation for every order in the month of September.

Customers will help donate a book to an underprivileged child every time they make a purchase on Desiknowledge, an online boostore carrying children's books, DVDs and other age-appropriate resources on Indian culture and mythology. The California based non-profit recently unveiled a redesigned, user-friendly website and brand new blog, The Balancing Desi. The blog serves as a platform for the Indian diaspora to connect and share views on the experience of living and raising children overseas. As part of their mission to give back, Desi Knowledge, official partner of Amar Chitra Katha Comics in USA and Canada, has pledged to donate a book to a child in need with every purchase.

The Desi Knowledge online store offers a diverse selection of picture books, Indian mythological and historical stories, CDs, DVDs, CD ROMs and children's comics in several Indian languages. The latest additions include bilingual Indian children's books that make teaching Indian children their mother tongue alongside English easier.

“Thank you for providing Indian parents the ACK(Amar Chitra Katha) way to introduce children to their culture and heritage and encourage them to learn more about India's history,” writes Renu, a mom and book lover from Atlanta, GA.

“Outstandingly helpful and useful site. My daughter loves the Hindi alphabet books,” says Swamy Vishanathan, a delighted customer from Palo Alto, CA. Shankar Rao summarizes it in a nutshell, “You have some really good selections for Indian kids to learn about our heritage and culture.”
