Safe­d­u­cate has launched the first-of-its-kind con­tainer li­brary in the month of Au­gust, 2016 at Ajmer, Ra­jasthan. Va­sund­hara Raje, Chief Minister of Ra­jasthan, Govern­ment of India in­au­gu­rated the Safe­d­u­cate con­tainer li­brary.

Raje said, “This con­tainer li­brary sig­ni­fies our ef­forts to­wards pro­mot­ing ed­u­ca­tion in Ra­jasthan. We will cre­ate many such con­tainer li­braries all over Ra­jasthan and en­sure that our peo­ple ben­e­fit from the high qual­ity books avail­able in these li­braries. I strongly be­lieve that ed­u­ca­tion must be im­parted to each and ev­ery per­son, ir­re­spec­tive of her eco­nomic sta­tus or gen­der. There­fore, we are en­sur­ing that these Con­tainer Li­braries are ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple from all walks of life.”

Gau­rav Goyal, District Col­lec­tor of Ajmer, Govern­ment of India said, “This is a mo­bile li­brary and will be moved to dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions across Ajmer, so that max­i­mum num­ber of peo­ple can ben­e­fit from it.”

Divya Jain, Founder & CEO, Safe­d­u­cate said, “Safe­d­u­cate Con­tainer Li­brary is a unique en­deav­our by us to cre­ate a mo­bile li­brary. This is made out of a re­fur­bished con­tainer, as a part of our Go Green ini­tia­tive. The Safe­d­u­cate con­tainer li­brary can be eas­ily moved to any lo­ca­tion across India. Many such con­tainer li­braries will be set up in the near fu­ture.”

“It is a learn­ing hub, where stu­dents can gain knowl­edge on a va­ri­ety of sub­jects. Mil­lions of peo­ple across Ra­jasthan will ben­e­fit from this li­brary. The li­brary has a vast col­lec­tion of books and pe­ri­od­i­cals meant for var­i­ous age groups. We need to chan­nelise the en­ergy of our youth into ed­u­ca­tion in a big way, and the Safe­d­u­cate Con­tainer Li­brary will help drive that, es­pe­cially from the per­spec­tive of those who do not have the ac­cess to high qual­ity books.”
