Role Reversal: Tatas gifts 65,000 books to poor US kids

The Tata Group North America has joined First Book, a non-profit organisation, in a programme to distribute 65,000 new books to children from low-income families across the US.
Second grade students from Dodge Park Elementary School in Maryland were the first students to receive the brand new books on Wednesday with the support of the Tatas.

Kyle Zimmer, president of First Book, said,

"First Book is tremendously grateful for the generous support of the Tata Group and its companies, which will help to share the joy of reading and learning with thousands of children in need across the United States".
