Rod Crookes

Born in Grimsby, 1948. Educated locally - leaving school at age of 16 with GCE passes in English Language and Mathematics. No further formal educational qualifications. After a few years of shop and factory work, became self-employed in 1969 and remained so ever since.

I consider education, especially at primary level, to be of great importance. A child who misses out on learning the basic skills of reading and writing at an early age carries a significant handicap, quite often hidden, into adult life.

It is for that reason I decided to become involved in Counting Hope, spurred on by Andrew's determination and enthusiasm to improve the lives of the people on Cape Verde.
