The 55th Annual Book Bank Function of Rajasthan Youth Association held today at Kamaraj Memorial Hall.

Prem Kumar Kavad, Guru Hasti Thangamaligai launched the Robotics skill traning programme.
Nitesh Bagmur, Managing Trustee said, “RYA has been distributing free textbooks since 1964. This year the focus is more on engineering students as they cannot afford expensive textbooks.
In the face of soaring prices of textbooks, students, especially those belonging to economically weaker sections, find their purse too small to purchase the books. This is where the role of Rajasthan Youth Association’s (RYA) book bank comes in handy.
Through the Annual Book Drive, RYA has helped transform the lives of many under-privileged families by helping their children complete graduation by providing them books and also following up on their careers through job fairs and counseling. There are many stories of such transformation from being the child of a maid, milk man etc. to an IAS officer, IT professional and entrepreneur. In past Three years more than 2000 students made their way for brighter future.
RYA to reach more near to students started Book Bank extension at Marudhar Kesari Jain College, Vaniyambadi and in last three years more than 1000 students are being benefited by our project and near future plans to cover the entire North Arcot District. To extend more this year RYA commenced extension to Vidhya Sagar Jain College,Chengalpattu, to reach to every needy students of entire chengelpet / Kanchipuram District.
