Today I'd like to tell you about an association called WriteUnite. WriteUnite aims to unite the voices of the future generation on global issues that truly matter through books written by students from all over the world. They have already published one WriteUnite book, The Perfect World. Here's a picture of some schoolchildren receiving their copies of The Perfect World.
WriteUnite are now in the process of publishing a second book, titled I Believe, and want stories and pictures on the theme of I Believe from children all over the world. They are asking children to write from their heart, expressing their dreams and aspirations. There is no grade, no right and no wrong. Every submission received will be published. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to not only express their dreams and aspirations, but to have their work published.
If you would like to get involved click here for more information on the submission details and requirements.
WriteUnite is a Monaco-registered association founded by a British student Omara Elling-Hwang to share the written words and art of youth across the globe.
The aim is to unite the world through short stories, poems and illustrations contributed by children from all around the world. In 2015 WriteUnite aims to reach out to more schools and more countries so they can truly represent the voices of youth across the globe. These submissions are then to be published into a book.
WriteUnite sells the books and all funds raised by profits are used to buy school kits for students in LEDCs. The first book entitled The Perfect World was published in 2013 and had submissions from students from all continents. The schools kits bought by the sales proceeds were sent to the Tegla Loroupe Education and Peace Centre in Kapenguria, Kenya, in February 2015.
The school kits include a pen, pencils, colouring pencils, three exercise books (one squared, one blank and one ruled), a sharpener, a rubber, a ruler and a pencil case as well as a sturdy rucksack. They ensure that these kits reach students who need them by working with established and reliable grassroots organisations that support their cause. The pictures here show schoolchildren with their kits.
