Tell a Story

About

If you love stories, this activity is for you. As part of this initiative, you will narrate one story a day for 13 days to a kid studying 3rd to 5th standard over phone calls. Every story will leave the kid with a moral value and lesson.


We will give you a volunteering handbook that will have all the stories which you want to narrate. All you need to do is, prepare before the call and tell the story excitingly and engage the kid.
