"Flying into the small village of Landsdowne House, I was quickly struck by its natural beauty and rugged remoteness. Although physically isolated, the children of the village demonstrated a determined curiosity and close connection with the global village through the internet television, and it quickly became apparent how crucial literacy is for these children. Literacy gives them the tools to not only interpret and understand the cultural messages of the global village, but it also allows them to give voice to their own experiences and share them with the world."
