“I've passed on what I learned at Let's Read to Indigenous parents, by sharing with them how it is important to read from the beginning and how it benefits young children.”
Now Ganima can’t believe how quickly Janeva is learning.
“My youngest is more exposed [to reading]. I see the difference. Janeva is advanced. Every day, she says, ‘Oh, Mum, I want to do some work,’” said Ganima.
“So we pull out all our activity books, showing her the pencil grip and building up her vocabulary from books. She sits down and she really enjoys it. And she can count to 20 – she’s just turned four!”
Ganima is so grateful to Champions like you for helping Janeva to develop vital skills early on.
"I want my children to have a good education for their future. I want them to get good jobs and have independence in their lives,” said Ganima.
“Without The Smith Family, the kids would have missed out on opportunities. I thank the supporters. They’re doing a really good job!”
