EEE

Today I am publicly showing my support for EEE: Empowerment and Equity through Education. This is a charity whose mission statement is empowering children and young adults who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In Nigeria, there is a saying that goes thus: “Give a man a fish and he will have a single meal; teach a man to fish and he will eat all his life. In addition to giving food, clothes and other necessities, EEE donates school supplies and text books to children in need of these in order to improve the quality of their education. Their founder Elizabeth-Wilson Anstey, a Cornell University Dean, travels around the country providing information on getting a college degree to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Empowerment and Equity through Education also has projects in Guyana and Haiti.

All proceeds from my kindle book Shoetry are currently being donated to EEE. So, thanks for those who downloaded Shoetry, and for those who are planning to, thanks in advance.

Every little helps.

    How true…I support Presbyterian Education Board which has schools in Pakistan, which includes young girls. Their motto is something like, “there is peace in education”….One child at a time and we can change the world! Now another reason to purchase your book besides the lovely poems…Blessings – Patty

    Thanks for the encouraging words Patty. I hope EEE can make the sort of impact that they desire to make.
