We're Changing Children’s Lives
We Strive to Eradicate Illiteracy by 2040
The World Literacy Foundation is on a mission to ensure that every child regardless of geographic location has the opportunity to acquire literacy skills and books to reach their full potential.
92% of your donation brings books and literacy support to children in need.
By giving the gift of literacy today, you are empowering a child with reading and writing skills needed to succeed at school and beyond.
At the World Literacy Foundation, we believe in literacy as the foundation of lifelong learning and education. People who cannot read or write experience difficulties with simple everyday tasks such as reading the label of a medicine bottle, filling in a job application or understanding a traffic sign. When we help someone to acquire literacy skills, we are empowering them to access to better opportunities in life to break the poverty cycle.
