As you turn each page, you will see how the voice and creativity of each young author shines through. How the messages that underlie each narrative speak of something important to that author. They’ve written something to change the world in the way they want it to change. How cool is that!
Upschool, through its free Write a Book to Change the World course, taught these children how to plan and compose their stories, and to utilise the Canva software to illustrate and configure their books, and then gave them a platform to share it with the world: The Upschool Library.
But, more than this, Upschool taught these children to stop and consider what’s important to them, empowered them to use their learning as a tool to make a difference, and set them on a path to grow into more tolerant, understanding and engaged humans. This is exactly what our world needs.
Each of these books support a charity project selected by the author. By purchasing a book, children raise money for an important project that’s addressing an issue they want to see resolved. Their very words and actions are helping changemaking organisations continue their important work and, in doing so, the children themselves become changemakers. And Canva converts!
Can you imagine how much more we can achieve together as partners?
There are hundreds of books in the Upschool Library and thousands more in the making. Learn more about the themes the author wanted to explore in their work, and click through to read it in the Library.
