The Reading Hub a non-profit organization with the solemn aim of making reading a subject of interest to all Ghanaian children have adopted more children within the Gomoa East district in the central region.
Volunteers who are part of the team spend their weekends taking children through reading lessons for free.
The organization which began with just a handful of children now has over fifty children who have subscribed to the service.
During a visit to the meeting grounds at Buduburam in the Gomoa East district, very enthused children were met seriously observing their reading lessons as well as dedicated volunteers who aided them.
About fifty children were present as at the time this reporter visited them.
Interacting with Harriet Woode, executive director of the ‘Reading Hub’, she reiterated the organization’s commitment to taking the project to every part of the country.
She outlined that it is their wish to augment the government’s policies on education including the flagship free SHS program with the project in order to improve quality.
“We want to support the education sector with this project. Reading is one aspect that can never be overlooked. To be able to answer examination questions correctly, one would have to first be able to read and understand. The importance of been able to read and understand can just not be underestimated” She mentioned.
Some of the volunteers who also spoke to Pinknews emphasized that it is their wish to inculcate in the young ones the habit of reading.
Harriet thus urges parents to encourage their children to take an active part in the program.
Harriet also called on philanthropists, government and well-meaning Ghanaians to support them.
Currently, the team is vigorously operating within the central region particularly Buduburam for free.
