After finding out about the low literacy rate in that nation, she set out to find out what she could do to possibly help. Thus, her service with the organization began.
While displaying a huge concern for students internationally, Damācia, also has a concern for her local community’s reading habits. She has organized and will be moving forward with her, summer reading initiative, “Read Across South Fulton”. Reports show, that most students read less during the summer, and their reading grades tend to have dropped when they return for the new school year. Damācia’s summer reading initiative, encourages students to read as many books as they can while on break to help them maintain a strong reading grade when they start back to school in the fall. With this being important, Damācia seeks sponsors to donate reading tablets and Amazon gifts cards to the top three students, that log the most books read or the most hours spent reading.
