Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate. Two-thirds of them are women. All over the world, children are hungry for learning and for the power it brings. Research shows that children learn to read and write best by writing and telling the stories of their own experiences. Yet it is rare to find safe spaces where children feel fully comfortable to do so.
LitWorld is changing that.
LitWorld is a non-profit literacy organization fostering resilience, hope, and joy through the power of story.
Our programs build self confidence, promote leadership, and strengthen children and their communities in some of the world's most impoverished areas. LitWorld's programs cultivate a new generation of leaders, storytellers and academic achievers, effecting change for themselves, their community, and their world. Our campaigns mobilize children and adults from around the world to advocate for literacy as a human right that belongs to all people.
