Help To Educate Children
When we heard about the appeal to help raise money to buy books to send to under privileged children in many different countries, we wanted to help. To be able to read, and to have many different books to choose from, to educate and enrich the mind. We believe reading, is not just for the privileged few, but should be available for all. Reading, opens a window into the world, from a child’s desk, he or she can explore far away places, learn about the lives of other people and raise their awareness in so many different ways.
Finally, why is reading important? Reading is important because words, spoken and written, are the building blocks of life. You are, right now, the result of words that you have heard or read AND believed about yourself. What you become in the future will depend on the words you believe about yourself now. People, families, relationships, and even nations are built from words.
We Can Help Together
Those of you who have grown up with easy access to books, cannot understand how precious they are in countries where the people are so poor, that they do not have enough to eat, let alone a decent education, or access to a library. Reading is not just a means of educating ourselves or to enable us to learn new skills and to understand what is happening in the world. It is also a magical world of literature, of poetry, of wisdom of hopes and dreams and gives us a sense of all things being possible. People need to dream and need to know that there is something better out there for them. The countries that will benefit from your help will be: Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Somalia South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Palestine.
We need as much money as you can spare. There are lots of ways of raising money for such a worthwhile cause, fund raising within the community, not only raises awareness of the problem, but it also brings communities together. Nothing is more worthwhile, then doing something for someone else that you can all be a part of. As a group we are passionate about reading, educating the mind and helping others. I am sure that many of you out there feel exactly the same.
Education is needed to make a change, give them the tools to make the change for themselves.
