There has been written so much about education as a key element to social change. And probably there are only a few things in the world that are that true.
When I came across this chart I was really surprised how many children books lack of diversity.
On the other side I know some people who are writing with enthusiasm, probably also some of them for children. And maybe some of you also on children from different countries and cultures. I do not refer to professional writers, but just to you and you and you …..
So, why not create a win win for all?
Why not setting up a source where children can just download your stories and read it? Why not looking for some hobby illustrators or also professionals who are interested in helping to add good illustrations to it? Why not working together with industries to find some sponsors for print versions?
What do you think?
Do you have a story to share? Could you help to illustrate? Are you a potential sponsor?
If you have stories, ideas, thoughts to share please contact me via my twitter account (@famina) or via the comment function of this blog.
I am particularly interested in health related stories for children from all over the world. And children as protagonists coming from all over the world.
It is not about gaining money.
