One of our LitClub members recently said: "Let's make illiteracy a once upon a time story, a story our grandchildren would never believe." Coming together on May 9th will help make this happen. If you can't be with us in person, your contribution from afar will directly impact the children we serve in over 24 countries.

A Story Is So Much More Than Words

Literacy allows us to recreate and shape our life stories. The girls, teens and mothers of our LitClub programs in the Philippines practiced storytelling in all its forms during a "River of Life" book-making activity led by teaching artist Tina Villadolid. They painted the paths of their lives using colors and words to express where they are from, and where they are going. With literacy, women and girls go forward more resilient and hopeful, joyful and strong.

Summer Has a Whole New Story

Did you know that LitCamp is in session for over 15,000 children this summer in New York City? That's not all. LitWorld and Scholastic are partnering with school districts across the country to make sure every child experiences the joy of camp and the power of a literacy community this summer.
