Literacy changes lives and life chances and September 8 was International Literacy Day. There are still many who crave the opportunity to learn to read and write. In 2016 UNESCO estimated that 10% of young people still did not have basic literacy skills, 14% of adults over 15 cannot read and write and two thirds of these are women.

You can log in to sign up as a bookworm for the month of October. Nominate how many books you plan to read and in doing so raise some funds to provide opportunities for our kids to reach their potential. Alternatively, you can donate to support a bookworm you know or you can make a general donation.
