Through theproject, Chris Dykes hopes to facilitatea love for reading in children.(Image: Chris Dykes) MEDIA CONTACTS • Chris DykesInfinity Learning+27 82 363 1958Wilma den HartighFormer US first lady Jacqueline Kennedy once said that a love of books is the best way to enlarge a child’s world. But for many children in South Africa, this is not the reality.Access to books is limited for many of the country’s children, depriving them of the opportunity to develop a love for reading. It also puts children at a major disadvantage when it comes to literacy and educational opportunities.Chris Dykes from Infinity Learning, an organisation that equips children with study skills through various programmes, decided to establish the Bookshelf Project in response to the desperate need for reading material in many impoverished communities in South Africa.The project provides books and bookshelves to any organisation that works with children in such a capacity, mainly in Gauteng province.The project has already set up the infrastructure that will impact the lives of 2 000 to 3 000 children through the eight centres, which have already received bookshelves stocked with books.Stimulating a love for readingDykes says the need for books became apparent in his conversations with staff at children’s centres and schools in underprivileged areas.“It became clear to us that limited access to books was one of the main barriers to literacy improvement,” he says.South Africa has a major literacy challenge. According to the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study, coordinated by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 80% of South African pupils do not develop basic reading skills by the time they reach grade five.“Our vision for the project is to facilitate a love for reading. I realised that kids need books to read. Many children don’t read because they don’t have access to books, not because they don’t want to,” Dykes says.Building bookshelves and collecting booksHe believes it isn’t enough to just teach a child to read. What children need is something worthwhile reading.“Children have to read books that are interesting, fun and that will help them to dream,” he says. This will help children improve their literacy skills, build their confidence and imagination, and ultimately improve their academic performance.The project has partnered with aftercare centres and schools that have a need for books and are keen run reading groups and homework sessions for the children they work with.“The initiative needs existing infrastructure to provide kids with a safe place to read,” he says.Instead of just distributing books, Dykes and his team also provide hand-made bookshelves to each centre. “Each bookshelf is built at our homes in our free time and no fees are charged for this time,” he says.But he says the project is growing so quickly that he is running out of time to build bookshelves. Soon he will have to outsource the construction to a carpenter.“Doing this is a great job creation opportunity that can also come from the project,” he says.Each bookshelf costs about R900 (US$122) to build and he is negotiating with a local hardware store to get a discounted price on the material needed for each shelf.The bookshelves are 1.8-meters wide and 1.5-meters high and can house 500 to 600 books. The goal is to ensure that every book collection contains a variety of books, including encyclopaedias, dictionaries, study guides, reference books, story books and picture books.All the books are donated by second-hand bookshops, schools and individuals who support the programme.“The response to the project has been phenomenal,” Dykes says. Just recently, a UK-based organisation, Book-Cycle, donated 3 000 to 5 000 books for the project.To date, the Bookshelf Project has collected books to the value of approximately R175 000 ($24 000). Some of the books are not suitable for children and are donated to other charities such as Friends of Rescued Animals and Forest Farm, which supports people with cerebral palsy.Future plansThe Bookshelf Project has a goal to reach at least 10 000 children in the next three years, but Dykes says this is a conservative estimate.He says that the main goal is to collect as many books as possible. In the next few months, he wants to set up a book-collection system involving schools in Johannesburg.To start out, he wants to approach 10 schools to organise book collection days, once a year. In doing this, the project will receive 500 to 600 books every month. He also wants to ensure that each bookshelf is stocked with new books every year so that the children won’t run out of reading material.The Bookshelf Project is a labour of love for Dykes and he is encouraged by the positive response to it. He says that he is also amazed at how well the children have responded to the project.“I met a 16-year-old girl who had never owned a book in her life because her parents are too poor to buy her any books. It was heartbreaking,” he says.Through the project, she can experience the benefits of reading. Children are also taking ownership of the bookshelves by keeping them neat and tidy.“The kids at the centres are just incredible,” says Dykes.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest When I was growing up, a neighbor had one of those Mule Barometers to monitor the weather. It said something like: “If tail is dry — Fair; If tail is wet — Rain; If tail is swinging — Windy; If tail is wet and swinging — Stormy; If tail is frozen — Cold.”In what has become an annual tradition in our garden, my six-year-old son has unknowingly constructed something similar. On days when there is even a hint or suggestion of spring in the air, his greatest desire is to spend endless hours digging a mud hole in the garden. When he completes what he estimates to be a significant milestone in the excavation process, he immediately recruits me to begin hauling buckets of water from the barn to dump into his newly expanded mud hole. With great delight for the both of us — and any area buddies my son recruited to stop by and assist with the endeavor — we watch the resulting water fall flow through the shallower areas of the hole into the deeper trenches of his garden creation.As one would imagine, the mud hole construction goes much more quickly in times of pleasant spring weather and slows in inclement conditions. As a result of the very mild 2015-2016 winter, the mud hole got a very early start this year with the initial ground breaking taking place on one of the several sunny late February days. The very warm March weather led to rapid early expansion of the project and countless hours spent with shovel in hand and muddy boots on feet.The first snow delay (note that this was only a delay and that the snow did not halt the progress) took place in April, though, as the balmy spring conditions deteriorated into a mire of ice and mud. Conditions did get so bad starting Saturday, April 9 that there was parental intervention requiring a temporary stay on the project — much to the dismay of my son and his growing crew of interested neighborhood boys. The shovels were shelved and the toy bulldozers were stopped in their tracks due to the exceptionally poor weather.After being gone for a couple of days in my work travels, I would never have to ask how the weather had been in my absence. All I had to do was go out and assess the relative clues provided by the ever-evolving mud hole.Mud hole bigger — Fair; Mud hole the same size — Stormy; Mud hole smaller — Windy; Mud hole frozen — Cold; Mud hole full of water — Wet.Based on the reports from the 2016 Reese garden mud hole barometer, spring started with very mild temperatures (making Ohio’s apple and other fruit producers nervous while giving early spring fever to corn and soybean growers) but then took a very unpleasant turn for the worse (making the fruit growers even more nervous and frustrating early corn and soybean planting hopes). There was some early concern about the potential for excessively dry conditions developing but, based on the mid-April mud hole barometer water levels, it appears that there will be adequate moisture for early crops to get their start.Soon we will face the challenging decision of tilling the garden and deciding whether or not we fill in the mud hole to make way for summer tomatoes, green beans and carrots. If we leave it, we will lose valuable real estate for crop production, but we will be preserving a powerful incentive for our son and his friends to spend spring and summer days with their hands in the dirt, their backs beneath the sunshine and blue skies amid a growing crop around them.Which land use is more valuable? We can always pick up some carrots at the store; the value of boys (and girls) with dirty hands can’t be bought. Plus, it looks like I won’t need to get a new rain gauge for the garden this year.

Several vendors, who have sold their produce in the Redemption Market downtown Kingston for many years, were overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement when they saw the newly refurbished facility that was handed over to the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) by the Digicel Foundation on December 14, 2012 The facility has been repurposed from a ground provision market to a haberdashery and is now called the Redemption Arcade. The project was implemented by the Digicel Foundation in partnership with the KSAC and the Urban Development Corporation (UDC), through US$500,000 in funding from United States Agency for International Development (USAID). A walk through the arcade reveals over 130 spanking new stalls made of metal mesh partitions with electrical outlets, a new roof and improved water, sanitation and waste management facilities. While most of the work has been done, the facility will not be ready for occupation by the vendors until January, as electrical work has to be completed to ensure the safety of vendors and shoppers. Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown-Burke, thanked the partners in the renovation exercise, noting that the project was a dream come true. “Today is really a very, very, good day because we have seen coming to fruition, a dream that we have long had. It’s something we have spoken about for so long and then we saw that glimmer of hope when we had the project approved, and it grew when we came and saw that work had started. Here we are today, almost at the finishing line… we are not quite ready for opening but I am proud of where we are today,” the Mayor said. Digicel’s Chief Executive Officer, Andy Thorburn, spoke of his company’s commitment to the regeneration of the downtown Kingston area and noted that the renovation of the markets was only one of several activities that the company is involved in to make this happen. “Historically, the downtown Kingston market area has been an essential part of the life of Jamaica. Everyone is here trading and excitedly doing so, and today, we are part of the ceremony to formally open this new facility, where 130 plus vendors will be involved in being successful day-to-day. Digicel and the Digicel Foundation are delighted to be part of this and are looking forward to visiting when the vendors have moved in and also spending some money down here,” Mr. Thorburn said. United States Ambassador to Jamaica, Pamela Bridgewater, speaking on behalf of USAID, said the renovation of the market represents a significant and positive step in the urban renewal of downtown Kingston. She noted that the vibrancy of the community is something to be proud of and expressed hope that the partnership between government, private sector and community, which led to the success of the project, will be encouraged and replicated elsewhere. Vendor, Jennifer Ford, who has been selling in the market for 33 years, expressed pleasure at the newly renovated facility. She is looking forward to moving in and has already chosen her stall. “I feel good about it (the market). We will be taking good care of it because I use to take care of it before and I will continue to take care of it,” she said. Councillor of the area, Donovan Samuels, in giving the vote of thanks, urged the vendors and members of the community to protect the facility.
Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, has charged the nation’s nurses to prepare to play a greater role in promoting and protecting public health.He noted that nurses, given the regular and frequent contact they have with people, are in a unique position to promote healthy lifestyles and advise persons against habits that can endanger their health.“The nursing profession has to prepare itself… (for nurses) to be greater advocates for the cause of public health and wellness in our society,” he said.The Minister was addressing the launch of Nursing Now, a global campaign aimed at promoting the profession, held on Tuesday (February 27) at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St. Andrew.The initiative is geared at, among other things, raising the status of nurses globally, and maximising the contribution that nursing makes to universal health coverage and women’s empowerment and economic development.Its key partners are the World Health Organization (WHO), International Council of Nurses, the United Kingdom (UK)-based Burdett Trust for Nursing, and nursing organisations across the globe.Minister Tufton, in endorsing the campaign, said it is going to reinforce the value of the nursing profession to public health locally, in the region and internationally.He noted that the impact of nurses is greatest at the level of primary healthcare; the preventative side of health, which is a major thrust of Governments globally.“It is a good time to highlight, to reinforce that importance, in order for us to take note and to do more to promote the interest, role and the contribution of a very crucial sector in the delivery of public healthcare,” he said.Dr. Tufton said the initiative will enable “greater empowerment of our nurses and provide them with the ability and the capacity to prepare themselves to provide greater leadership, as an important response to the public health challenges the country faces”.

Sci-Tech The Art of Science draws beauty from medical research Related stories In conclusion, the Danish team ended with a resolute statement in support of the idea that “MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, does not trigger autism in susceptible children, and is not associated with clustering of autism cases after vaccination.” The study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine on March 5, was funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and the Danish Ministry of Health. In recent years, the anti-vax movement has gathered steam, resulting in a reluctance among some parents to get their children vaccinated. This social shift recently caused the World Health Organization to label “vaccine hesitancy” one of the biggest threats to global health in 2019. Measles cases continue to rise, with the WHO stating that the global spike is the result of “gaps in vaccination coverage.”In 2018, there was an almost 50 percent increase in worldwide measles cases and approximately 136,000 deaths. And the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have already reported 206 cases of measles in just two months, after a total of 372 cases were reported in 2018. Will this new, comprehensive data set be enough to sway those on the anti-vaccine side? Probably not. A number of studies over the last decade have looked at various vaccines, including those that contain mercury-based thimerosal, and found no association between autism and vaccines — a handful of research papers suggest otherwise, but the idea largely survives thanks to a fraudulent paper from 1998, the wilds of social media and a pervasive sense of mistrust. 13 Photos It only hurts for a second. Karl Tapales/Getty Images The vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella doesn’t cause autism, according to a massive, new study. It’s yet another study that unravels any tie between vaccines and the developmental disability. A link between autism and the MMR vaccine has long been erroneously suggested, due to a controversial paper published in prestigious journal The Lancet over 20 years ago. Read more: How to track the 2019 measles outbreakAlthough the author of that paper, Andrew Wakefield, has been discredited and the original paper retracted, the myth that vaccines cause autism persists, even though mounting scientific evidence suggests otherwise. Today, if you wander too deep into the forest of social media, you’ll eventually be lost in arguments and counterarguments from a vocal minority arguing that vaccines are responsible for the disease. Not so, shows the new study, conducted by a team of researchers with the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark. Their study followed childbirths in Denmark from 1999 to Dec. 31, 2010, and then followed up with the children from 1 year old until the study was completed in 2013. Using the Danish health registry allowed the researchers to compare a cohort of vaccinated children against unvaccinated children, definitively showing that those who received the MMR vaccine weren’t at a higher risk of autism. Examining 5,025,754 person-years of follow-up data, the researchers found 6,517 children who were diagnosed with autism. The team also showed that even those children considered more susceptible to the condition due to family history and other risk factors were not at higher risk of the disease.
