Under an affirmative CSR action program for government schools, we make Bilingual Efundu books available to underprivileged children and promote the cause of equal education to create an equal learning platform. Efundu is an approved library resource for govt schools.
“Children are learning Kannada, English and Environmental science together.” M.R. Ananth Kumar, Founder, Kaliyuva Mane, Divya Deepa Charitable Trust, Mysore, “Children love this book. Our teachers and children, both are using the book. If we teach only in English, children fail to understand and lose interest. If we teach only in Kannada, rural children will be missing an important life skill. Your book fills this important niche. Children are learning Kannada, English and Environmental science together. We appreciate the efforts in bringing such a beautiful book.”
We are grateful for the wonderful association and support of our partner Corporates, NGOs & the Government.

“Love what they do.” Pramod Sridharmurthy, Secretary, India Literacy Project, “For all of us, value education has always been through stories, etched in our minds even after decades. I always wondered why we were not replicating this for our school subjects, until I came across efundu. This is exactly what I was looking for! Love what they do. We are already using their books in about 200+ Govt schools in Tumkur.”
