Children Participate in Literacy Campaign

Send My Friend to School is a campaign throughout schools in the UK that aims to hold its government accountable for the millennium promise to send every child to school. 75 million children around the world do not have access to education, and while this is a big improvement from the 100 million in 2005, the number is still too high. This year, the campaign is focusing on The Big Read, an event involving young people from 100 different countries. Students are encouraged to write stories and poems underlining the importance of improving literacy for every child in the world, sending those stories to their prime minister.
