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.

A Fine Bookworm
June 25, 2017

Nicole Remedios find a nest where it’s actually Book warm! On a fine rainy day, Gayatri Borkar walked the Santismo lane in Taleigao.

Of Storytelling; By a Storyteller
June 10, 2017

‘The greatest art in the world is the art of storytelling….’ With a few lines dramatized to perfection, and delivered in bold and confident strokes, Raj had all of us captive. Our ears and minds absorbed each word from her mouth, as they spoke through different characters; each pause pregnant with expectation. The captive audience […]

The Place Where the Sidewalk Ends
May 31, 2017

There is a place where the sidewalk ends And before the street begins, And there the grass grows soft and white, And there the sun burns crimson bright… Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow, And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go, For the children, they mark, and the children, […]

Press feature: For the love of reading
May 29, 2017

Bookworm in Goa is a creative space of constant and thoughtful engagement A library appears the most innocuous of spaces, and a children’s library doubly so. But Sujata Noronha, the director of Goa’s Bookworm Trust, knows differently. “Literacy is about reading the world, and not just the word,” she paraphrases Paulo Freire, the Brazilian educator, […]
