Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company has said that it has partnered First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise to donate four thousand new books to students in the Boston area.

The books will be distributed to registered First Book members in the Boston area, providing additional education resources in the community where Wipro employees live and work. The books will be used to stock classroom libraries, facilitate reading circles and help students build their home libraries.

Launched in 1998, First Book’s National Book Bank is the first and only centralized distribution system for large-scale children’s book donations from publishers to schools and programs serving kids in need. The National Book Bank distributes 10 million books annually, and with Wipro’s support, 19,000 of these books will be donated to schools and programs in Indianapolis, Boston, East Palo Alto and Seattle.

Meanwhile, shares of the company were trading at Rs 288 apiece, up 0.19 per cent from the previous close at 12:09 hours on BSE.
