POVERTY AND IGNORANCE.MAIN BARRIERS.

POVERTY AND IGNORANCE ARE THE MAIN BARRIERS TO CHANGE IN MY COMMUNITY.LACK OF BASIC AMENITIES IS A BIG ISSUE.AMENITIES LIKE HEALTH CENTERS ,ELECTRICITY GOOD AND BEFITTING ACCOMMODATION,GOOD ROAD ,E.T.C.STRUGGLES FOR DAILY NEEDS TO KEEP BODY AND SOUL TOGETHER HAS TAKEN THE TOLL ON WOMEN.WE CARE LESS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AROUND US.WE DON'T HAVE GOOD READING CULTURE,SO MOST WOMEN DO NOT UPGRADE THEMSELVES TO BE ABLE TO ADOPT TO NECESSARY CHANGES. WHEN I DISCOVERED THIS PROBLEM I MADE A DECISION TO DEVELOP AND HELP HAVE ACCESS TO CERTAIN INFORMATION THROUGH PUBLISHING OF COMIC BOOKS.COMIC BOOKS MAKES READING TO BE VERY INTERESTING,ITS ENTERTAINING AND INFORMATIVE.I HAVE PUBLISHED ABOUT 15 DIFFERENT TITLES.WE HAVE STORY ON HIV\AIDS,ON DRUG ABUSE,GREED,AND SO ON.WE CAN CHANGE PEOPLE THROUGH READING AND READING RELEVANT STUFFS.WE ARE BUILDING A WEBSITE WHERE OUR BOOKS CAN BE ACCESSED AND READ FREE OF CHARGE.WE INTEND TO CHANGE NOT ONLY MY COMMUNITY BUT THE WHOLE WORLD THROUGH PUBLISHING COMIC BOOKS THAT ARE NOT VIOLENT,BUT MORALLY EDIFYING.WE HAVE FOUND OUT THAT MOST PEOPLE REMEMBER WHEN THEY SEE ILLUSTRATIONS THAN JUST WORDS.SO WELL ILLUSTRATED COMIC BOOK WILL GRADUALLY ELIMINATE IGNORANCE AND ASS WELL INFORM .I HAD ALREADY POSTED A SUMMARY OF ONE OF OUR STORIES ON MY JOURNAL SOMETIMES AGO.THE TITLE OF THE COMIC BOOK IS' THE WOMEN OF COURAGE'.THIS IS A STORY ON HOW SOME WOMEN CLAIMED AND GOT WHAT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS TO THEM WITHOUT BEEN VIOLENT.THOUGH ,IT WAS ADAPTED FROM THE BIBLE BUT VERY RELEVANT TO US WOMEN.WE ALSO HAVE STORIES ON SOME OF OUR PAST HEROES IN COMIC FORMAT.SO THAT WE CAN RAISE MORE HEROES WHO WILL WANT TO BE LIKE THEM.MOST OF THESE HEROES HAD WONDERFUL WOMEN BEHIND THEIR SUCCESS.

You are truly doing a nice work. Our problem in Nigeria like you said is poor reading culture. I will really like to read one of your books.
