We are distributing several books, FREE, received from a donor. Please check out the details on how you may get copies for your organization/school . . .

The Indian Institute of Geographical Studies (TIIGS) is committed to and striving for positive changes in geography education.

We recognize the importance of inter-disciplinary education and believe that geography is the best discipline to bring about integration among the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, arts, and other disciplines.

Empowering teachers, students, and institutions is the best way of achieving this.

TIIGS collaborates and cooperates with like-minded organizations and individuals in this endeavour.

The publishers, Pearson Education, have sent us a large volume of books to be given away to educational NGOs and resource-challenged schools.
