D.E.A.R means Drop Everything And Read. This project was initiated to encourage students to read. It comprises a box containing carefully selected books of different categories that will motivate the students to read. This box is placed in each class for easy access. Every day, a minimum of 30 minutes is dedicated to making use of the books. During this time, students in the class drop whatever they are doing, pick up a book from the D.E.A.R time box and start reading. The number of books placed in each box for a class is ten times more than the population of the class. Once every week, the project manager visits the school to get feedback on the project.
