VOInews, Palembang : The Kampung Pandai Community collaborates with Sriwijaya University and the South Sumatra Reading Ambassadors to develop literacy in the villages. 

Book author and driving teacher facilitator Dwiki Al Akhyar said that the benefits of reading and writing, apart from improving language skills and vocabulary, also broaden horizons and knowledge.

“Many studies have written about other great benefits of reading. Not only does it reduce stress. "Mental health is also maintained," continued Dwiki Al Akhyar on Literacy Talk of Empowered Reading Ambassadors with Books in Palembang, Wednesday, (12/6/2024).

Reading activities are carried out for various reasons. First, reading for recreational purposes (entertainment). Second, intensive reading, such as reading textbooks and scientific journals. And third, critical reading to analyze and evaluate the content of the reading.

Meanwhile, the benefits of writing include developing critical thinking skills, expressing ideas and feelings, improving communication skills, and helping to process emotions and reduce stress.

The founder of the Benny Institute, Beny Arnas, admitted that experience has proven that the benefits of reading can make oneself more critical. In fact, if you want to become a 'master' in a certain field, just do something intensely and consistently.

“Writing is not just about writing, writing automatically also means reading. "By writing, the brain will work to attract various information to be included in writing," concluded Beny.

According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Wednesday (12/06/24), on the sidelines of the Literacy Talks with the Indonesian Reading Ambassadors, the book "Delima Resilient Women Across Generations" was also handed over to the South Sumatra provincial government, representatives of Bank Indonesia, the Financial Services Authority (OJK) regional 7 of South Sumatra, and high school/vocational school teachers//VOI
