Hindustan Times launches programme for underprivileged children

New Delhi: 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.
