Being able to read English alone is Education.

For certain groups of people globally, it might be the only Education they need to get Free.

Free Will is a birthright. But not everyone is taught how to exert it. Throughout history, and well into today, governments, class hierarchies, religious systems, societal institutions, the general populace, even your parents will rely on and exploit your lack of truly understanding its intricacies. How is an oppressed class supposed to get Free? Sure, there’s an excellent argument to be made that Education helps. But modern education is now an Institution, available only for sale; mostly a factory for manufacturing future pillagers, it’s not a swift enough approach for a member of an oppressed class to embark on, if he were to start right now.

You are the sum of what you’re exposed to. You’ve either seen it or you’ve read about it. You also needn’t have lived in 1776 to experience the effect of the ‘Declaration’ of Independence. You can read it; they wrote it down. It’s now usable information. But, you need to be able to read it to set your folk free.

Valuable discoveries have been made only in the last Century. All of it is documented in the English language. If one can start to consume the most valuable information available to mankind today, the answer to their own liberation is buried amongst the accounts they now get to consume; possibly liberating his or her Community along the way. An opportunity to go every day to a designated time & spot to be taught to Read in English provides the type of repetition School provides. Enough to keep someone out of general mayhem in their life. Have a routine.

Turns out, learning to read in English is exceptionally straightforward & easy. I volunteered in an organization within the New York Public School System called Reading Partners. They’d determined that, if a student wasn’t reading at a certain level by Grade 4, they’d fall behind for the rest of their schooling & careers. They identified lower-than-range readers and partner them with fluent volunteers. Facilitated by a package of educational material used to coach their minion over two, 1-hour sessions-a-week. My non-English speaking Yemeni-migrant-ward, was making significant progress by Day 5. A 30-year old’s grasp & intensity can get them there much sooner.

END is always soliciting volunteers to support its efforts.
