Reading Village Model
Promoting literacy is a diverse and interdisciplinary effort. Reading Village programs begin with literacy, foster learning, and aspire to impact quality of life across the villages in which we work. In this way we transform communities one teen at a time.
Learning begins with literacy. When we can master the written word, we can engage with a world far beyond our immediate environment
Why Literacy Works
Around the world, nearly 1 billion adults are illiterate. Without this skill, their opportunities are limited. And if you can’t read you can’t teach your children to read so their opportunities are also limited. Creating a culture of literacy can break this cycle once and for all.
