Our Mission: To empower young people to author lives of independence, hope, and joy.

LitWorld is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization creating permanent positive change in the world through on-the-ground innovative solutions to the profoundly hard-to-tackle issue of illiteracy worldwide. We highlight the power of children’s own stories and access to diverse, quality reading material as two key foundations for success. We work in partnership with locally based organizations to build sustainable community impact.

Our key programs are LitClubs, LitCamps, World Read Aloud Day and Stand Up for Girls.
