Pratham Books (www.prathambooks.org) is a not-for-profit children's book publisher that was set up in 2004 to publish good quality, affordable books in many Indian languages. Our mission is to see ‘a book in every child’s hand’ and we have spread the joy of reading to millions of children in India. As a publisher serving every child in India, Pratham Books has always pushed the boundaries when it comes to exploring innovative ways in which to create access to joyful stories and have been fortunate in finding partners to collaborate with who share this vision.
In 2015, Pratham Books increased its footprint by going digital. StoryWeaver is a digital platform that hosts stories in languages from India and beyond so that every child can have an endless stream of stories in her mother tongue to read and enjoy. The stories can be read, translated, versioned, or downloaded for free. All stories on the platform are openly licensed.
India’s National Education Policy (NEP 2020) has made it a mission to achieve foundational literacy for all children by 2025 and aims at building a culture of reading in schools across the country. In the last few years, we have increased our impact by investing deeply in foundational literacy and reading programmes to further our mission.
We are looking for a passionate individual to lead the StoryWeaver Partnerships function who can drive our impact goals by forging strategic partnerships with organisations that promote reading and learning among children. The Senior Partnerships Manager will be responsible for strategizing and executing plans to increase the user base of StoryWeaver and also provide the necessary resources, support, and training to the partner network. This position will also play a critical role in the development of new foundational learning programmes as well as enhancing the existing ones.
