Tell a  Story 

We all grew up listening to stories from grandmas, parents, aunts, and uncles. Today kids miss hearing 

good stories because of the busy schedule of parents, nuclear families, and increased use of gadgets.


Team Everest has come up with ‘Tell a Story,’ where a volunteer will tell a story via phone call to a child for 30 mins per day at 7 PM IST. 


We will share a storybook with volunteers. Looking for Tamil or Marathi Speaking volunteers living in India only. 


We will be doing an online orientation to explain the activity.


Signup and Enjoy the storytelling fun!
