3. Targets of the Project

First Phase: 1991-1996

The project’s first five year plan had two main targets. They were:-

° Book Production.

To produce a total of 220 titles of children’s books. The project purchased 3000 copies of each title produced under it. These were distributed to rural libraries, a few primary schools, teachers’ centres and some kindergartens. This purchase helped to strengthen those involved in the production of the book, i.e. the author, illustrator, publisher, printer and the book seller.

° Training.

The Project organizes training courses, workshops and seminars for people in the book industry with the objective of improving their skills. It has organized courses, for writers, illustrators, publishers, editors and booksellers.

Second Phase: 1997-2001

° During the second phase of the Project there will be one additional activity i.e. Readership campaign among children. The activity will be undertaken in collaboration with the librarians Association.
