Reading warrior promotes literacy among Pasifika
Fortunate to have been brought up with books and reading, Kiwi writer and teacher David Riley realises many young New Zealanders have not had the same learning opportunities for various reasons.
Drawing on his experience in the education field, and his knowledge of Pasifika and Māori issues, David was motivated to produce books and teaching materials for young people and educators.
The books about Māori and Pacific role models and Pacific legends focus on creating reading material to engage and inspire young people.
His publishing house Reading Warrior aims to help young people with literacy, help them to learn more about their cultures and to spur them on with stories of positive role models and achievers. Read the full story here.
