Donate towards literacy

Our primary objective is to address systemic challenges at home and in the classroom which prevent children from learning to read and write at grade level. We hope that each child we access can spread the love of reading and that we reach families and communities too. This is only possible if we grow our team of supporters who are dedicated to uplifting our country by empowering our children.

Help us support as many children as possible on their road to reading – commit to a monthly contribution or donate a lump sum.
