“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela (South African President (1994-1999) and philanthropist) 

DONATING EDUCATION BOOKS is imparting a wealth of knowledge to those who are aspiring for it but are not able to afford it. Education is priceless. Each one of us can make a difference and give the less privileged a reason to live a better life. YOU can make a big difference in assisting to educate the underprivileged by donating educational books. As students progress from one class to another, individuals can donate their academic books and add value to a deprived life.

In a country of 1.3 billion, the number of uneducated far supersedes that of the educated. The underprivileged sections of Indian society can barely afford an education for their children. A change for a meaningful life is what the Ratna Nidhi Trust has always championed for.

July 2016 – The Ratna Nidhi Trust took a big leap and initiated the ‘Mission Million Books Project’. The mission entails distributing 1 million education books absolutely ‘free of cost’ to 10,000 education institutes in India.
