Hello, welcome to BBB Book Club 🙂
We believe that great vision may be achieved by doing small things consistently, and women, especially mothers have this important role to decide the future of a country. Promoting reading habit is one of them.
BBBBC or Buibu Baca Buku Book Club is an book club for Indonesian women. ‘Buibu’ is a slang term of ‘Ibu-Ibu’ for Indonesians addressing married women. It is created a small step for a great vision: empowering women and improving the nation’s literacy.
How can ‘promoting reading habit’ be ‘women empowerment’?
Reading (the right books) is enriching our way of thinking and broadening our perspectives. Mothers who read more have higher probability to be more knowledgeable, wiser, and take better decisions in the family.
Also mothers who read will inspire their children to copy the same habit. In this era where information comes and goes faster than ever, reading books can teach the children to be patient and have longer focus.
There are many more benefits of reading that but before this page gets longer than a short story, we would to emphasize that creating a community with positive people encouraging each other to do positive things is our FIRST step and we hope that it won’t be the last. We hope that it would grow into something bigger in the future.
