A woman with a goal, Jyoti Dora is a force to be reckoned with. Her enthusiasm for reading inspired her to design a curriculum for encouraging early literacy in young children. Readers Adda, her programme, aims to better the lives of children in every manner, not just by teaching them new phrases and frameworks.
For Jyoti, it all started with her kid, Charvi. Charvi always had a passion for books, even as a small kid. Jyoti was determined to instill a love of reading in her kid and introduce her to a wide range of literature. She started reading to Charvi on a regular basis from a wide range of books, and soon Charvi was devouring books herself.
Jyoti observed that neither publicly nor privately run libraries were accessible to children during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. As a result of being cooped up indoors, folks had time on their hands but few tools with which to make use of it. At this point, Jyoti had the inspiration to create a doorstep library stocked with more than 7,000 books. Jyoti engaged in some imaginative thinking about the ages she was working for and the types of books that might pique their interest. When kids have signed up to use the library, their caretakers aren’t exactly enthusiastic about taking them there.
Jyoti’s daughter inspired her to study how children’s minds process literature. She learned that many kids dislike reading because they equate books with having to work too hard. For youngsters to form the habit of reading, Jyoti realised this view had to shift. Consequently, she developed a reading curriculum that covers all the bases: phonics, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, group debates, and the exchange of ideas. Her initiative encourages young people to view reading not as a chore but as a pleasurable experience.
Jyoti was resolved to transform the way children viewed books and instill the habit of reading thanks to her over 23 years of expertise in the corporate sector and as an educator with international school experience.
The results of Jyoti’s programme have been astounding. Children who take part in Readers Adda not only see an improvement in their linguistic abilities, but also in their communication skills, self-assurance, and mental clarity. They improve their skills as readers, speakers, and writers. Most significantly, kids discover a lifelong passion for reading.
Jyoti’s achievements have not been overlooked. She was felicitated under the Inspiring Humans category by the World Talent Organization USA. Many in the education and parenting communities have expressed their gratitude and admiration for her curriculum. Because of Jyoti’s passion for getting more people reading, she launched a franchise that gives women business owners a chance to support their families while also spreading the gospel of reading in their local communities.
Not everything Jyoti has done has been simple. She’s had to supplement her daughter’s home library on the regular and develop a curriculum that’s tailored to the specific demands of each youngster. Yet, she has stayed motivated by her love of books and faith in reading’s ability to change her life for the better.
The path that Jyoti has taken is an example for us all. She exemplifies the fact that one individual can have a significant impact on the world around them. She has developed a curriculum that encourages youngsters to develop not only their linguistic abilities but also their interpersonal, leadership, and communication skills. Her initiative proves that reading is beneficial in more ways than one, and not only for academics.
