About Us

Bookworm Trust was founded on 2014 after nine years of Bookworm begin established as a small partnership firm. In the nine years of ‘pilot’ work, Bookworm demonstrated that there was a deep need to take library work to deserving communities, to spread the joy of reading and also to enhance critical literacy skills amongst children in Goa.

The Trust was settled by Elaine Mendonsa a partner in Bookworm and is presently managed by three Trustees. The Trustees have reposed all working responsibility with Sujata Noronha, who is the present Director.
