If you happen to live in a well-developed country, you wouldn’t think about this twice. But if you happen to grow up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, it's a different story…. Most school buildings have leaking roofs and more often then not, the walls are about to collapse. There are no restrooms and the schoolyard is far from being safe. The children have to sit on the floor and they lack a blackboard and teaching materials. Over the course of 8 years, En Classe has renovated dozens of school buildings, which are being used by a whopping 6.500 students annually. En Classe prefers to cooperate with Congolese companies.

Reading Sight

There are 33 questions which will take about 10 minutes to complete. At the end we will give you a personal reading plan with some recommendations about the next steps to carry on or rediscover the pleasures of reading. To help us put you in touch with the libraries and services where you can get books, newspapers and magazines we would like to ask you some questions about your reading interests and preferences.

We will also ask about your access to computers and other equipment. We will only keep this information or pass it to any of the five partner organisations if you agree to that at the end of the questionnaire. Most questions ask for a simple yes or no response.

THE HOSPITAL PLAN (Hansard, 14 February 1962) § LORD TAYLOR My Lords, I should like to begin by adding my word of congratulation to the noble Lord, Lord Brain, on his maiden speech.

THE HOSPITAL PLAN (Hansard, 14 February 1962)

I was brought up on two rather tough text books, called The Diseases of the Nervous System, and Recent Advances in Neurology by W. Russell Brain, and I cannot honestly recommend them to your Lordships as light reading. On the other hand, I can recommend to your Lordships a book called Tea with Walter de la Mare, which Lord Brain wrote some years ago, and which is one of the most delightful books I have read, in the real tradition of Sir Thomas Browne and the other medical scholars. We are now really very strong in your Lordships' Houes on the medical side, but we are considerably stronger after yesterday, and we are delighted that Lord Brain should have joined us. The spectrum of medical Peers is now truly remarkable, ranging from Lord Malvern at one extreme to Lord Adrian at the other. Mind (The Mental Health Charity)
