ParagSchool libraries can be the most efficient source of access to literature for a majority of children who are enrolled in schools, but do not have books at home. However, 74% schools do not have functional libraries. Recognizing this need, Tata Trusts launched the Parag initiative in 2005-06. Parag supports the development of, access to, and use of children's literature in Indian languages, to promote reading among children.
