The Global Forum Women For Women Entrepreneurs (GFWE) together with the Well Of Wisdom Book Club International is running the Well Of Wisdom (WOW) Junior Book Club. WOW will help encourage Primary School pupils from Grade 3 -7 to read.
The program was initiated to show students that reading can be enjoyable and fun. In our society, most children and teens would rather watch reality TV or play videos games.
It is important to help young people understand that there are other beneficial ways to spend their time. With most pupils opting to use the internet and watch TV after school, they are not frequently exposed to the correct use of English.
The WOW Junior book club meets one Saturday per month. It is a place for pupils to learn how to speak and spell correctly.
Another benefit is for them to network with others who also enjoy reading for pleasure.
The club will also give direction on which books to read and where to start.
Some ways for you to help

Launch a book drive to collect books from school children.
Collect books from school children for a younger child in another school.
Ask your local library if they would like to donate some books and help bring them to the reading class.
Approach the schools in your area and ask if they would like to donate books from their libraries. They might be willing to buy extra books for this project when they order for their own school.

Donate any amount if this is close to your heart and you want to help our children discover the joy of reading.
