From Jacinthe Morin McCurdy, the creator / editor of 'Young Voices of the Nile':
"As a volunteer working alongside the 'mamas', I came to understand the importance they put on a proper education for their children. They see education as a key to a better life and hopefully a life removed from poverty. The 'mamas' tireless hard work, love and devotion mean that they sometimes go without even the basic necessities so that their children may receive a good education. I wanted the children to have an opportunity to write about their country and themselves and to find within themselves the love of writing and reading, fundamental to educational success. This book is theirs...filled with their stories, their drawings and most importantly, their voices."
The book features:
* 31 Reflections and Short Stories
* 25 'Young Voices'
* Original hand drawn artwork by the authors
* Authors come from Grades 5 - 7
