Saksham Trust has an objective of providing books to persons with blindness or low vision in a format that they can read themselves. In our effort to achieve this objective, we bring to you the bookshare India. Book Share India is an online library of documents that can be downloaded and read using a computer or a mobile phone. The Bookshare project is a unique concept since the persons with blindness themselves produce these materials. Bookshare works as a coordinator and facilitator to collect all such material and make these available to every one in the country who cannot read normal printed text.
Book Share India is a joint project of BookShare.org of Benetech, USA and three organisations in India . Saksham Trust is the partner organisation of Benetech to offer bookshare India services in North, East and North-Eastern States of India. These states are:
- Arunachal Pradesh
- Himachal Pradesh
- Jammu and Kashmir
- Uttar Pradesh
- West Bengal
Any person who cannot read normal print due to any physical or sensory impairment can become a member of this unique online library by paying annual membership fee of Rs. 400 rupees. BookShare offers this membership in India at a highly subsidised rate.
