Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

the skin of utopia

I have a ridiculous and indulgent enthusiasm for little, and not so little, Moleskine books but have always felt a bit stupid about spending that much money for a notebook or diary. Thanks to Janet Isserlis on Facebook, I can now more comfortably allow myself this luxury. Janet let us know that Moleskine supports lettera27, a non profit foundation on a mission "to defend the right to literacy, to education, and access to knowledge and information, all over the world and especially in the most deprived areas".

Visit their site to see more about the projects they support:

WikiAfrica/Palabre, a project designed to Africanize Wikipedia through networks, research, projects, publications, and events. WikiAfrica contributes to Wikimedia projects online and offline with texts, quotes, images, audio, and video.

The AMREF Italia project in Dagoretti-Nairobi dedicated to recover an identity denied and to create opportunities and a new sense of community for street boys and girls in Dagoretti Nairobi (Kenya).
Or join the tower of babel:
A tower made of thousand of thoughts, phrases, and dreams on the theme of the right to education and access to knowledge. Thousands of pages available to each person: writing, the skin of utopia.
