Oceanic Library is the first project of READ Global, USA in India in collaboration with VSSU. It is the type of Community Library and Resource Centre which encompasses healthcare, income generating, skill development training and education programmes. In a typical month the library gets used for several different activities;
There are several projects running in the buildings that were set up to enable the library self-sustainable. In one area of the library a honey production center has been opened to help generate income. However a drawback that remains is the lack of funds to initiate and fund the startup of big projects.
Unfortunately the generator that the honey production is reliant upon has broken the production is temporarily on a standstill. This does not, however, compromise our aim to succeed in the ongoing project of building a strong foundation that the whole community can benefit from. Every year Oceanic Library conducts every year we offer free health check-up camps in collaboration with Local Nursing Home where the community people are examined by qualified doctors free of cost. In addition, free of charge blood tests for sugar and other diseases are provided to everyone regardless of caste, religion or economic background.
