EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
The right to read and write is a fundamental human right and belongs to all people.
LitWorld's mission is to use the power of story to cultivate literacy skills in the world's most vulnerable children through Education, Advocacy and Innovation.
LitWorld creates resilience building reading and writing experiences which connect and fortify communities.
Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate. Two-thirds of them are women. LitWorld joins together with teachers, parents, community members, and children to support the development of sustainable literacy practices across the world.
What will LitWorld Accomplish?
By 2014: Help one million children learn to read.
By 2016: Equip ten thousand literacy leaders to effect change that will impact ten million children across the globe.
For my 40th Birthday, I'm running the ING NYC Marathon on November 4, 2012 to raise money for LitWorld. I hope you support me in raising $2000 for this uplifting and innovative organziation.
Read. Write. Run.
