Gift of Gyaan.

October brings along a great opportunity for all to play a small part in a huge cause i.e. education of the underprivileged children.

Gyaan exchange, a start-up company, in association with its NGO partner Goonj has organised a BOOK COLLECTION DRIVE in all the major metros of India until 10th October, 2012.

Gyaan exchange is an online community where anybody with a skill, knowledge or idea can teach and anyone with a desire to gain knowledge can learn new things. Gyaan exchange aims to collect at least 500 books through this drive and has volunteered to give them to their NGO partner Goonj. 

Goonj works as a medium in channelizing the unused materials lying idle in our urban homes to far flung villages where people don’t have access to the basic essentials for living.If you have any questions about the NGO, you can find your answers here.

All you have to do to make a contribution is go to your book shelves, pick up the books you know you are never going to read or have read, dust them and send them across to the addresses listed below.

The books can be any genre. Fiction, nonfiction and even curriculum based. So dig thru  and get out those books. There is not going to be a better way to put them to use. You can also send in books thru Flipkart and other e-commerce websites.

The brand will also be giving away exciting prizes to those who give the maximum number of books. The top three and ten lucky winners will get a book hamper from

Your book will end up being a medium in imparting knowledge to someone who needs it the most but can’t access it. So contribute as many books as you can. There are prizes to be won too.Hurry, you can send in your books only till 10th October, 2012.

Some words of encouragement!
