Every now and then I have a look at the Puo Eduational Products website and today I found a story by Peter Heinlein which is very relevant. It's about Yohannes Gebregeorgis who brings books to kids by using a donkey to pull the trailer-cart carrying the books where children once a week can borrow books to read.
I would really like to know more about that man. His story is such a great example. It is inspiring and I just had some ideas I will write down and see if such things can be done. He is one part of the chain that is so often missing. We, in our association, can create booklets, materials, even have a book printed and sent to someone if people hopefully help by funding that, but we need to know who is that "someone" taking the books to kids. By imitating his work combining it with many other forces around the world who cannot work in place, but help with words, sentences, stories that then can be printed, even printing only some books via print on demand, and be brought to such a person who then takes thesm up giving children the possibility to read, learn, know ... well that is special.
Yohannes Gebregeorgis is a person who does what is needed and we can only hope that many will become inspired by his story and do the same for their country.
We therefore invite you to read his story, which is relevant to so many children.
