Thanks for visiting my page and taking an interest in something I am passionate about! My name is Sara Saunders Lasu, and one of my passions is for all children in the world to have access to books with content they enjoy and can relate to, to help them build strong literacy skills and life skills. So many of the world's children are failing in school, in large part because of poor literacy skills. This is not surprising when they have little to no reading material with which to practice and develop their reading skills. I am endeavoring to make a contribution to the creation of books for the children of the world who are most educationally at-risk and often under-represented in the existing children's literature (in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, refugee communities, etc.) Creating a good children's book demands materials, time and effort from me and often from collaborators (artists, co-writers, etc.). The contributions of patrons will support me to be able to make this investment.
Once a book is created, the project of making it accessible to the target group is another campaign that I will invite you to also take part in when the time comes. :-)

Every little bit helps! Even if you can't contribute much individually, if enough people contribute even $1.00, I can reach my goal!

I will be sure to keep you updated on the progress of my work and share a digital copy of the final product.

Goals
$0 of $350 per creation
When I reach $300 per book, I will finish a pending draft of a book about Zawadi Sarah, a true story from rural Uganda about a girl with a physical disability who persevered despite the discouragement of many nay-sayers to achieve academic success and recognition as a leader and now advocates for the rights of other persons with disabilities in her nation. The money will help me facilitate my co-author to work with an artist to finish the book.
