Literacy Bridge saves lives and improves the livelihoods of impoverished families through comprehensive programs that provide on-demand access to locally relevant knowledge. At the heart of the programs is the Talking Book, an innovative low-cost audio computer.
Literacy Bridge's programs reach out to impoverished pregnant women and mothers of young children. The Talking Book devices are loaded with health behavior and agriculture messages to help mothers with the selection and production of crops that offer maximum nutritional value for children under five years of age. I wonder if their program is aware of Moringa?
Understanding the learning potential of young children can change the world in dramatic ways. It can ensure peace or exacerbate war. That little brain is going to adapt whether it means pulling a trigger or planting a seed. Peace Corps and Rotary International are powerful organizations dedicated to a peaceful world. One of the avenues to that end is literacy. If children are able to read, they will be more informed and can make decisions for themselves. People who can read are more able to take charge of their lives and are less likely to be victimized.
Although reading stories to their children can be a chore for some busy parents, Fernanda Chen has plenty of reasons to smile whenever she reads to her two kids.
Just two years ago, when she arrived in the U.S. from her native Brazil to join her husband, Chen could barely speak English. She realized quickly that her inability to understand the language could thwart the hopes for professional and academic success she had for herself and her kids: Stephanie, 6, and Cristopher, 4.
Then she heard about the Family Literacy Program at the Greater Reading or Writing Skills Literacy Council in Apopka. GROWS, as the council is known, is one of the agencies supported by the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund's Education Matters Campaign. In the GROWS classroom, immigrants learn to read, write and speak English well enough to function in the U.S.

May 13th, 2012 - @Counterpane reports having a great experience showing teachers how to implement Souns in the Head Start program in San Juan Municipality.
"The children of Puerto Rico will read. Beautiful people, eager children, the tremendous support of Rotary Districts 7000, 6990, and The Rotary Foundation are making this work happen. Literacy is the key to peace in the world. A child who cannot read will be a victim for life. Children from economically challenged environments have the same inherent abilities as children from economically advantaged environments. We can make a difference for all children with Souns, leveling the playing field, and building a better world for all."
