Our Impact

We are reigniting the light in our children

When a child learns to read, the whole family is positively impacted. New worlds in the book pages ignite desire, which leads to empowerment, and a culture of high expectations. Effective literacy skills enable communities to pull themselves out of poverty and underemployment.

Our learning sanctuaries are spaces of inspiration. They encourage imagination, mental travel, and the adoption of new ways of being for children, young people, parents and grandparents. We are convinced by our progress that an increase in literacy levels will raise Africa’s labor productivity and add to the continents Gross Domestic Product. Join in! A world of possibility awaits you – if you keep turning the page ❤

Reading is a sacred indulgence and a great way to escape. It opens you up, exposes you, and gives you access to anything your mind can hold. Reading gives you the ability to reach higher ground, and for this reason it’s our mission to put a book in the hands of every child and reignite the light in children who are growing up in a culture of low expectations .

You’ve got to follow your passion… figure out what you love… who you really are… and have the courage to do that. The only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.

We dream of kind, loving, self-confident and courageous children who value excellence and possibility for themselves and for their communities.
