Because there are a variety of reading levels among the women of Ikenne, To Mother, With Love aims to obtain materials for various skill levels. Some women have never read a word in their lives, while others may have up to a an eighth grade education. Regardless of what they are able to currently read, the ultimate goal would be for every woman in Ikenne to eventually be able to pick up any book and read it cover-to-cover. Literacy brings hope to the disempowered, and no one deserves more support than those who devote their lives to supporting others. Nigeria's education system is in tatters at the moment, and there are almost no resources available to those who were not granted education from an early age.
