Because of smart phones and computers, Children don’t get any attraction from reading books. So some of volunteers speak a book for children. At first, children just listen a story from volunteers. But finally, children also get some attraction from the books. They are not forcing children. Germany government tries to make this this event as common situation.

  • Only a third of Indonesian students – in a country where 57 million attend school – complete basic schooling.

  • Indonesian Corruption Watch claims there are very few schools in the country that are clean of graft, bribery or embezzlement – with 40 percent of their budget siphoned off before it reaches the classroom.

By providing Lead to Read Foundation, we would like to get the access to introduce them with proper education. This problem is our responsible therefore, we should take part of it.
