Release of Audio Books for Children
PMI Kerala Chapter

As a part of its social outreach activities, PMI Kerala Chapter released audio books for school children in the age group of 5-10 years. The books have been created by chapter volunteers. The initiative aims to support the online classes for school children, and follows the curriculum prescribed by the State Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT).

Following the success of the program, chapter leaders were approached by officials from the Thiruvananthapuram headquarters of Kerala Federation of the Blind (KFB), seeking their help to make available the Braille versions of the reference books prescribed in the curriculum. Over 200 books were handed over by KFB for conversion into audio books.

The chapter initiated the project in association with its Academic Forum partner, Saingits College of Engineering. The project is continuing with more volunteers, and will benefit a large section of underprivileged children.

The chapter will also a submit a pledge of service in support of PMI’s global commitment for social impact to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in 2021.
