We began Bookworm in September 2005 out of Panaji, Goa with the thought of creating a rich accessible collection of childrens’ books.
“Bookworm” – a name which expresses the key quotient of the quintessential book lover has since then evolved to encompass several streams of thought – to impart food for the soul, broadening horizons of opportunities for children who have few or no one who read with them, to create a tool which empowers and recognizes the need to comprehend the written word.
Reading is a language in its own. It holds the key to multiple realities. Once we engage therein, it empowers us to think beyond the boxes our socio-cultural milieu may place us in. Bookworm seeks to achieve this through several avenues.
