Local initiative to support access to education but SELF-EMPOWERMENT too. 
Sometimes the simplest ideas can just stop you in your tracks - but these are the most powerful don’t you think?
I found this quite fitting as 2012 is actually National Year of Reading (see http://www.love2read.org.au for funky shindigs like Byron Bay Writers Festival 3-5 August)
Every child deserves that opportunity - to have access to the sheer joy and inspiration that comes with reading books (call me old-school but Jemba, you know what I mean!).
Needless to say, the Child Rights Taskforce (www.childrights.org.au) is passionate about all children (especially our most vulnerable groups: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, out-of-home care and asylum seeker children) having equal opportunities to education.  
I must admit - I couldn’t help thinking that education aside, more than half of all homeless people in Australia are children. There is something so profoundly unacceptable about that thought.
