March 19th is International Read to Me Day.
It takes a village to raise a child, it takes a child to inspire a village! This day empowers children to ensure they are read to.
International Read to Me Day aims to:
Change the dynamic and empower children to ask for more support, not just from their birth family but also from their community. Promote, encourage and inspire reading activities within communities. Showcase organizations that are passionate about improving the literacy standards of the children around them. Address the disparity between resources and where they are distributed, by supporting a book drive and sending the collected books to locations around the world to those who are looking for books!
