Take Action

Give a child in India the gift of literacy

You can make a lasting difference in the life of a child.

Nearly half of children in India leave primary school unable to read or write, and the problem persists yearly as new students slip through the system unnoticed. By taking action, you give these children the means to escape a lifetime of illiteracy. You give them a chance for a brighter future.

There are many ways to take action. Help to create lasting change.
