The Indian social fabric is currently undergoing a phase of unprecedented change. This is in part due to the onset of a newly defined value system deeply influenced by western ideology and thought processes. Adult members of our society have, over the years, developed the requisite coping mechanisms and survival skills to selectively embrace the new and preserve the old. The younger generation, on the other hand-- children with highly impressionable minds-- need a guiding force, a role model or an inspirational voice to instill in them a sense of confidence and achievement in their country's values and culture. Vatsalya attempts to fill this void through its bouquet of programs, projects and services. The Foundation's most successful program involves the support of book projects in which Vatsalya's sister body, Akshar, has published several books for children. Books in the fiction and non-fiction categories including short stories, narratives and informational titles have been authored by noted writers of juvenile and young adult literature. We encourage you to browse through our comprehensive list of books including books for children and order titles that interest you for both personal and family use, or to give as gifts. Please also consider gifting a small collection of children's books to your local community library. Simply indicate to us the amount you wish to spend and Vatsalya will not only locate a suitable community library for you but will also take care of all the necessary arrangements to smoothly facilitate your gift of knowledge to your own community. Your gift will be recognized and displayed on our Gift Registry on this website.
