AICS and The Global Storymakers (US) are promoting access to reading books for children in their own language. This often is not feasible for publishers due to low volumes in some communities. This project offers an innovative approach in which AICS mobilizes children in school and communities to form story writing and reading groups. The mentors from Global Storymakers train these children on how to write a book. The children are aided in printing of their books locally. Through these, talents are groomed, children are able to tell legendry stories and celebrate heroes on their own communities. This will contribute to providing access to reading books for 1 billion children across the Globe who currently are not able to access books in language they can understand.
