REKORDBREAKERS TO PROVIDE FREE BOOKS FOR 20,000 STUDENTS
Illiteracy is one of the biggest challenges in Africa. Over 40% of the population above 15 years of age are illiterates.
The factors contributing to illiteracy are more prevalent in Africa. With a high proportion of children who do not have access to primary education or leave school early (40%), or who have not even mastered basic skills at the end of primary school (50%), there is a high risk of falling into illiteracy.
The United Nations Declaration Literacy Decade (2003–2012) reaffirms the role of literacy at the heart of the fundamental human right to education.
The human right has a number of key characteristics. It is inseparable from the recognition of human dignity; therefore, it is universal in that it is acknowledged for all people irrespective of social origin, gender, race, ethnicity, or age.
To encourage education in other to kick out illiteracy in Africa, join the Rekordbreakers drive to provide free books for 20,000 students in the 2022/2023 academic session through the READS CAMPAIGN AFRICA.
READS Campaign is aimed at ending child molestation and fighting for the rights and well-being of children, through short and educative novels, plays, and poetry that offer a timely solution to environmental and societal crimes committed against children.
The cause of the campaign is championed by the creation and promotion of educative stories that emphasize children’s right to education. Also, it creates awareness and informs the public on the need to get 70% of the child population off the streets into the classrooms.
Currently, three of our titles under the READS CAMPAIGN, Guilty, Bleeding Scar, and The Cripple Goes to School, are approved by the Lagos and Ogun State Ministry of Education to be read by secondary school students.
To join the Rekordbreakers’ mission of providing free books for 20,000 students in the 2022/2023 academic session, contact READS CAMPAIGN AFRICA to sponsor as many copies as you can.
