Learning to read is a milestone in every child’s life, it is a fundamental skill. All children should be able to read by age 10. Reading is the gateway of learning and furthers the ability to learn other subjects.

Our Mission
Our mission is to inspire youngsters to realize their full potential by furthering their education outside of the classroom, particularly by enhancing their performance in the areas of mathematics, reading, and social development.
Ending Learning Poverty!
Learning poverty means being unable to read and understand a simple text by age 10. We believe we can help fill the opportunity gap by supporting out-of-school organizations that are established as youth development professionals.
