I strongly believe education is an essential human resource which can help us all make this a better world. In such a world, there is no place for social injustice or unlimited greed and every human right is fully respected.
But no matter how urgent or necessary it might be, this other world needs to be constructed. And before we can take action we first need to know, we need to be aware.
Whereas story books for children provide a background against which the story unfolds and situations are depicted and issues highlighted, books for young adults and adults offer opportunities to use prompts and convey information at a deeper range and scope.
I feel books and stories enrich our world, are eye-openers and, if used in the right way, can make a worthy contribution to that other world we want.
