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.
Literacy means more than just the ability to read. It also means the ability to process and solve problems, making it a crucial skill set for anyone in today’s modern world.
DMSI International believes in ensuring that all employees have access to books they can read at work or home, and so we set up a space in our pantry room for the books donated by the entire DMSI team. Employees are encouraged to grab a book to take home and read.
We also believe that reading helps us grow as people and improve our social, emotional, and mental health. By fostering this culture of reading at DMSI International, we hope to empower our team members with tools for success in all aspects of their lives.
And that’s why the importance of improving adult literacy needs our attention — because it provides people the opportunity to thrive.
