A LIBROMAT? Bringing together literacy and laundry.

Big image
"A team of young social entrepreneurs from Oxford University believes that these women’s time could be better spent with their children by reading and bonding with them and has piloted a program called the “Libromat,” which brings literacy and laundry together. After outfitting an early childhood development center in Khayelitsha with washers and dryers, the team offered a month-long course to parents during the time their clothes were being washed and dried. Lessons involved book sharing with children as well as pointing out and naming objects and generally boosting verbal and emotional engagement with children. The proximity and affordability of the washers and dryers allowed the parents (mostly mothers) to spend quality time with their young children and to take a much appreciated break from hand-washing, which can be extremely physically taxing in addition to being a lengthy process."
