Maimbolwa commented on Literacy Education & Economic Empowerment

John Konsin thaks for your inspiring comment. Indeed we are busy looking around the world to have partnership to take the message around. Forexample, in August there was a request from us in Botswana to hear about our program and it really excited them such that they are intending to implement it in 2018. In July 2017 we received visitors from South Africa who came to visit and learn about our project in selected and schools and they were amazed at the results. later they requested us to hold a Stakeholders orientation meeting in FreeState province in South Africa and we visited the Ministry of Education including some schools where we learnt the dire need of this unique program. They are starting to implementing this project in few schools in February 2018. So you can see how we desire this to spread. In Zambia next year we are trying to mobilise resources for holding a unique stakeholders meeting for stakeholders buy-in for increased support and participation. One of the Stakeholders is the Ministry of Education (National Level), Zambia National Educational Coalition (co-host and mobiliser) and various local development actors and donors.

Hi Iliriana,

Thanks for your valuable comment and eye-opening. We did not realise that the ideas should be finally implemented in the United States. Therefore, we would like to ask for your further guidance, whether we should hand it over to our supporter and orignator of this idea who are LitWorld, who shall decide whether to take it up or not, or we just step out of the challenge. Thanks so much
