OHBD Local Ready Set Go Books Lead, Yoseph Ayalew, Shares A Passion for Education in Ethiopia

I’ve always followed my passion rather than running after money. So when it comes to work that matters, non-profit jobs offer the opportunity to be a part of something that will profoundly impact society. That is why I joined Open Heart Big Dreams. Ethiopian children want to read a good story, but with the lack of good reading material, standards of literacy are going down. I suppose it is all due to the lack of stakeholders, but a few well-meaning Ethiopians are helping children properly focus on reading and making education a priority. I believe Open Heart Big Dreams will fulfill for those children who want read many story books. I am lucky to be a part of this journey. I am probably not the first person to work towards achieving my particular dream. As such, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel.

My dream is big like Open Heart Big Dreams: to immerse myself with great ideas and techniques, and to take OHBD to the next level. That level is to improve children reading skills by helping to publish many story books with my colleagues throughout Ethiopia.

Thank you. God bless you all.
