Since 2015, under the initiative Michigan & Georgia Reads, we have been implementing different programs to lift literacy levels for children in marginalized communities with a focus on girls’ education, African American, Latino and First Nation.

In some regions of the United States, literacy rates vary greatly between ethnic and socioeconomic groups. More than 60% of low-income families have no children’s books in their home. For children aged 0-6, there is a 30-million-word gap between children from the wealthiest and poorest families.

Thanks to the support of local schools, communities and major donors such as the 76’s NBA basketball player Tobias Harris, we are bringing support to children with limited access to books and educational resources.
