WindReach donates books by disabled authors to schools

WindReach has donated packages of inclusive literature to each of the island’s public preschools and primary schools.

Each school received five books in recognition of the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities, celebrated today.

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, expressed his gratitude in response to the donation.

He said: “WindReach intentionally selected these books as they are centred around the authors displaying their disabilities, showing their authentic experiences.

“Bermuda public schools welcome and celebrate those with diverse needs and look forward to the positive impact that these books will have on all of our students.

“We also want to praise WindReach for their advocacy for inclusion, as each and every child deserves to be embraced and supported.”

Kalmar Richards, the Commissioner of Education, added: “As WindReach works to enrich the quality of life for people with special needs, we hope that this very thoughtful and generous donation of books will provide an avenue for students to deepen their insights and challenge them to become advocates for persons with special needs.

“We applaud WindReach for the excellent programmes which they provide for students and the larger community.

“They demonstrate great care and consideration for students and clients and ensure quality experiences for those who take advantage of their services.”
