The World Literacy Foundation is global a non-profit organization striving to ensure that every child regardless of geographic location has the opportunity to acquire literacy skills and books to reach their full potential – succeeding at school and beyond.Thanks to You, We Did It! In 2019-20, our programs and services impacted 116K+ children, parents, and communities in the locations where we operate through book distributions, reading sessions, literacy mentoring, solar-powered tablets, and more.
