ABOUT THE FOUNDER
As a passionate reader with a fascination in global literature, Prithvi Parthasarathy actively volunteered with the literacy non-profit organization Read2Dream foundation for the past six years. Prithvi thought about what he could do as a youth education advocate to better a future generation and provide it with the tools it needs. Fully aware that once we overcome the hubris of thinking we can help everyone, we figure out those we really can help. In this spirit Prithvi founded StoryJourney.org, a literacy organization created to raise visibility for and form a platform for the voices of indigenous peoples through the literature of their authors. Storyjourney’s mission was used to build his first library at Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Academy, sending hundreds of indigenous literature titles to the city of Freeport, Bahamas. Through his collaboration with the Read2Dream Foundation, he has sent over 3500 children’s books to institutions around the world including the Bahamas, Philadelphia public schools, and various local elementary schools in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Prithvi is also a fellow in the Germination Project, a program dedicated to culture leaders in Philadelphia. The goal of this website is to provide students free access to indigenous literature, information about indigenous authors, and students can obtain these books so they get to know the lost indigenous cultures of the world.
