We started The Pick Up, To Get Up Foundation to promote the benefits of Reading, Entreprenuership, and Education to change the outcomes of people who are trapped in poverty. We feel reading is a skill that needs to be encouraged, When you can read effectively you can better understand the world around you. We feel the best way out of poverty is through Entrepreneurship. When someone is able to successfully start a business they can create better outcomes for themselves and their family. We also believe education is crucially important to creating pathways to success. We want people to become life long learners because when you learn you grow.
Fortunately, along with the sheer joy of reading, it also appears that there’s a strong link between reading and success, making it an essential skill for personal development
Entrepreneurship is a source of empowerment for the economically disadvantaged. Fostering entrepreneurial development among the poor can break the cycle of poverty.
Education is the great equalizer: It can open the door to jobs, resources, and skills that help a person not only survive, but thrive.
