Project Reader to Leader

A child who reads, becomes an adult who thinks. Here are Top 10 things Research has proven on why kids need to be introduced to reading books ?

1. Brain development
2. Makes them more imaginative
3. Helps them pick up language skills
4. Stimulates curiosity in a child
5. Develops communication skills
6. Increases concentration
7. Improves the attention span
8. Helps in memory retention
9. Builds Personality
10. Better ability to comprehend.

These 10 qualities will lay the foundation for becoming a leader in future. If we need leaders in next 10-15 years, we need to invest in creating lakhs of readers.

Mission Project Reader to Leader 2022-23

1. This academic year 2022-23, our mission is to subscribe at least 1 magazine to 5,000 poor and needy students across Bangalore / Karnataka Schools. We will finalize the magazine based on the student’s class, background and location.

2. We will have MOU with Schools who will share with us the details of needy students and we will bulk subscribe the magazines to reach the school every month.

3. We will conduct monthly Quiz and Essay writing competition school wise / city wise and choose at least 3 winners from each school / city.

4. The 3 winners every month will get a scholarship amount equal to their 1 month school fees which will be transferred to the school directly from CIGMA Foundation. This scholarship amount will be funded by the donations we receive. Insha Allah !

5. Incase of government school students, we will transfer the scholarship amount to the student / parent bank account.

Sawaab e Jaariya unlimited – What happens to the magazines after 1 year ?

These magazines become part of school library or donated to other students after use by current students. They can be easily used for next 2-3 years and empower thousands of students. Alhamdulillah !…. and Insha Allah the cycle continues !

Final Comments

Back to the headline – Today a reader, tomorrow a leader. We need our younger generation to read, read, read and read. I sincerely hope and pray that this message inspires lakhs of donors to sponsor general knowledge and current affairs books to the poor and needy student which will change their thinking, mindset and heartset.

Note : All the magazines listed above are available in public domain. Neither me nor CIGMA Foundation have any connection with the publication. My effort through this message is to motivate donors to think differently and invest Zakat / Sadaqa in creating future leaders who can think !.

I am a subscriber of these magazines from many years. Me and my children have got immense knowledge and benefit by reading these books. Alhamdulillah

Think Differently
Please feel FREE to subscribe any other magazine which you or your children read. Let poor and needy students not miss the learning our kids get going to well paying schools !
