    Our Literacy Boost program can make a world of difference for the kids who need it most. Our three-pronged approach to the program includes assessments, teacher training and community action to significantly improve a child’s core reading skills. We believe that more children will learn to read if they are well supported to do so in their classroom and beyond the school walls.

    In developing countries across the world, many families are unable to afford books for preschoolers and parents often lack the tools and knowledge to help their children to learn. Alphonsine, mother to 4-year old Epaphrodite, takes part in our First Read community training project in Rwanda. These parenting sessions give parents tools and new ways of thinking about how to raise and parent preschoolers, helping to give their children the essential foundation for learning.
