I enjoyed exploring the Connection Center this week. The link, Explore Global Perspectives, took me back to Bonnie’s Global Café. I found a great story related to excellence and equity. I watch a video without one word of English and yet it was so powerful I could completely understand what was happening. The video was of World Forum leader Ronald Ssentuuwa promoting literacy in Makerere Kivulu, a poor area of Kampala in his home country of Uganda. He read a story to a group of children and was able to spread the love of literacy
It was amazing to listen to him read and see the eager interest of the children to hear the story and participate in the story. What a powerful message of literacy. Children want to learn they just need someone to take the time to show them.
