Early literacy is vital because it not only supports children’s cognitive development but also their social-emotional development. Young children who have strong early literacy skills are better able to communicate their thoughts and feelings with others.
On the other hand, improving adult literacy is also important because it improves a person’s social, emotional, and mental health. It also provides an opportunity for a person to thrive in today’s modern world.
At DMSI International, we are happy that, thru the book drive that we organized in our workplace, we were able to contribute to the development of children’s emergent literacy for the kids at Children First Head Start and at the same time, provide free books at our workplace so that we can read at work during a break or at home.
Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the help and contribution of the entire staff of DMSI International.
