Teach an adult to read.
Inspire the world to change.

Literacy changes everything.

When adults learn to read, write, or do basic math, their transformations are nothing short of remarkable. They can find and keep jobs, enjoy better health, and educate their own children. Their new skills enable them to dream big, do more, and move forward. And that means society can move forward, too. Our solutions are designed to spark this type of lasting change for individuals, communities, and the entire world.
