This dream of forming a reading club in order to give back to society started at the BBC Media Action where he made a presentation on the importance of reading in front of both international and local staff including the the country director and international director of the BBC Media Action. That presentation was highly appreciated. Hence it served as motivation to take it further by forming a reading club which later transitioned to a community-based Non-Governmental Organisation with its headquarters in Bo.
