In the United States, literacy rates vary greatly between racial and socioeconomic groups:
More than 60% of low-income families have no children’s books in their home
There is a 30 million word gap between children from the wealthiest and poorest families.
That’s why the North America World Literacy Foundation is working to change the future for these children. We are partnering with local schools and communities to provide children’s books, tutoring, literacy support, pop-up libraries and general awareness activities to children and families from disadvantaged backgrounds.
