    Apart from the apparent benefit of academic improvement (specifically in comprehension, analytical and storytelling skills), the provision of books would allow disadvantaged children to develop the emotions of empathy after reading about different perspectives, hence would mould them into compassionate and socially aware individuals. Examinining accounts which reference real experiences would increase their inqusitivity and allow them to explore other fields of study such as History, Sciences and Political sciences. Reading, as a whole transports an individual through rich journeys and experiences, while often empowering them to overcome the hardships in their personal life. This is accentuated through the common saying, “Knowledge is power”, which highlights how knowledge, in the form of literature can stimulate children to discover their place and potentially allow them to become influential leaders and stimulate positive change in the world, if given the opportunity to do so.
