I don't remember how I stumbled onto this neat website, but I was thrilled when I did. I have been praying a lot lately that God would use my passions AND talents in a meaningful way. And I still don't know what that will look like, or what I think (in my limited vision) that's supposed to look like... But maybe this website was revealed to me for a reason...
Ethiopia Reads does everything from planting libraries in Ethiopia, to running mobile libraries, to publishing children's books in Amharic (language most speak in Ethiopia), to training teachers. It's really amazing. Please, go read all about it at their website (linked in the paragraph above). And you can get involved while you're there!
I firmly believe that reading can change the world. Books are hope. And there are a lot of places in the world that need change, and need hope. Ethiopia is one of them.
Is there an effort you're involved in that's using books and reading to make a difference? Near or far? Tell me about it!
