Youth Literacy Initiative
Literacy has traditionally been described as the ability to read and write. It is a concept claimed and defined by a range of different theoretical fields.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) defines literacy as the “ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute and use printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society.” Wikipedia
Buy It, Donate It, Find It, Read It, Recycle It!
Conquer literacy is not a easy task but here is how you can help:
- Send us your old readable children books
- We will add them to our warehouse and prepare them to be shipped within 7 business days
- Parents can search our online catalog and decide which books they want to read
- Once the child has read the book, send it back so another deserving child can benefit as well
Nearly two-thirds of low-income families in the U.S. own no books.
