This is a 5-minute video about the NZ Howard League for Penal Reform’s Literacy programme in prisons. It’s an organisation I support that is doing wonderful work to help the 50% of inmates in NZ prisons who are illiterate, so that when they return to their communities they have a better chance of finding and holding onto a job, as well as being able to read to their own children. Being literate also raises their self-esteem, and opens up the written world to them.
Thank you for watching :). For more information, or to become a member and receive the newsletter with current activities, visit their website: http://www.nzhowardleague.org.nz/
