Today’s children are quite lost in the digital black hole and parents are looking for healthier and a more purposeful alternative to video games and Netflix. At 'My Chapter One' we create an ecosystem - neighbourhood Reading Gyms to build 21st century skills in children through books and stories.
How do we do that?
We partner with aspiring women entrepreneurs and help them set up a home-based reading gym where children come together to discuss books, improve their reading abilities, learn about the world and engage purposefully.
A Reading Gym is a home based after-school activity center, that provides the combined benefit of a library, reading program, and a reading club. It is hosted by trained women (women entrepreneurs) who role model the right behavior, track progress, and sustain excitement in the process.
From the student fee, we take a share for the services we provide and equip and support our women partners to be successful edu-preneurs.
In the past few months we have worked with over 1000 students in the age group of 4-14, read about 15000 books together, helped over 100 children publish their first stories and added 50 smart and enterprising women partners to our network. We are a small team of women, building more women entrepreneurs and making 1000s of children fall in love with books.
All funds raised on the iFundWomen platform will be used to expand our network, build more reading reading gyms and grow our community.
