Litworld implements on-the-ground innovative solutions to the challenge of illiteracy worldwide. The combined power of children’s own stories + access to diverse reading/writing experiences + peer to peer and adult mentor relationships = productive and transformational literacy. We work in close partnership with locally based, grassroots organizations to build sustainable programs for young people around the world.
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 to advocate for literacy as a basic human right that belongs to all people.
I have a feeling my marathon days may be behind me, but I'm running the More Women's Half-Marathon for Litworld because I believe so strongly in the mission of this inspiring organization. Please consider giving a donation of any amount and check out our website at www.litworld.org.
Thank you so much!!
