As part of the monthly Enlightenment forum at Ayder, experience sharing on ‘The power of Reading and Writing’ was held on August 31, 2018 at Ayder Campus.

It is believed to be worth noting to discuss about the power of reading and writing for the mere fact that these engagements are one of the many which they can be best instruments to empower oneself and to bring about social development.

Thus, the speaker tries to address on the philosophical and practical aspects of what a reading and writing has got to do with human life. Accordingly, so long as going with time is living, especially reading will complete our living and it acquires our choice of life said Mr. Muluworki. Moreover, people who don’t read cannot be political society they may rather be moral society so we shall read to live, added the speaker.
