Some weeks ago I read at Alabama Chanin journal a post about the girl-effect. It struck me how simple sometimes a solution can be. Education for everyone, an answer that already can make a huge difference in this world.
Some of you know that I feel strongely about reading and learning kids to read. Each week I walk into a classroom and I listen to kids when they are reading to me. Why? Because at times parents don't have the time or the patience to sit down and do it. Learning to read means practice, nothing more, nothing less. I am happy to give away my time to children because without the skill of reading the chance of a good future isn't possible in our society. Our society depends on reading and the number of kids that can't read when they leave school is growing rapidly in the western world. Helping each kid, each week is my contribution. The future has started, let is be a bright one.
Have a lovely day.
