Ajji’s Simple Guide to Coronavirus

These changing times call for big adjustments in everyone’s lifestyles, including that of children. This fun narrative, brought to you by the wise and wonderful Ajji, (with a little help from Saili Gupte & Jahnavi Koganti!) can help children quickly navigate the precautions they can take during this crisis, while adjusting to this new normal and finding new hobbies. The authors believe that children can be change makers with the ability to understand situations if explained clearly, and can participate by taking responsibility for themselves and their loved ones.

You can read Ajji’s Simple Guide to Coronavirus here and download it here. While the book is free to download or distribute, we’d love it if you could give us a donation to support the work of Gubbachi Learning Community, an organisation that works towards the educational inclusion of migrant children in Bengaluru. Please email us for details.
