Tell a Story


Once upon a time, we all grow up listening to stories from grandmas, parents, aunt and uncle. Today kids miss to hear the good stories because of busy schedule of parents, nuclear families and increased use of gadgets.

Team Everest has come up with an initiative called ‘Tell a Story’ where a volunteer will tell a story via phone call for 30 mins per day at 8 PM IST. 

Our ‘Tell a Story’ initiative starts on September-21-2021 (Tuesday) to October-07-2021 (Thursday). Book with list of stories will be shared with you. Looking for Tamil or Marathi Speaking volunteers living in India only. 

We will be doing an orientation for signed up volunteers. It is mandatory to attend the orientation to be part of it.

Enjoy the storytelling fun!
