STREET SMART… BOOK SMART
You see them every day on the streets, trying to sell what their parents gave them to sell before the end of the day. We ignore them and tell them to move away because we want to drive on. They see people riding in their nice cars and they dream of a better future…. At least I think they dream. Or have their hopes been dashed against the rocks of reality because they lack access to quality education?
They never asked to be poor. They never chose to give up on their education. It’s just the life they’ve had to live. But it doesn’t have to be the life they will live forever.
Street kids can now receive good education at home with the use of our Mavis Talking Books™. Our Mavis Talking Books™[ provide the best basic education for children out of school from the comfort of their own homes or wherever they choose to learn.
Many parents are not willing to take their children off the streets. The extra income they get is of great importance to the family. The least they can do is to educate them at home when their work on the streets is done for the day.
Today we recognize the strength and resilience of millions of street children around the world in the face of unimaginable hardships.
Street children have the same rights to education as any other child. Join us as we work with our partners and government to provide them with quality basic education using our Mavis Talking BooksTM and Mavis Education Model™.
