Started in 1988 with Tamasha! the magazine for children on the road to literacy, we were formally registered on September 8, 1989 — serendipitously World Literacy Day! Katha is a unique model that seamlessly connects grassroots work in story, education and urban resurgence. We started with the main objective: To enhance the joy of reading. But for children to read well, we need many things to happen at the same time. And making all this happen is the story of Katha!
