Equip children with the gift of reading! With a single $60 gift, you can help an American child and a Rwandan child learn to read. For many children, education goes beyond getting a good job or earning an income—it’s a matter of life and death. And a first step on the path to success in school, and life, is the ability to read.
A child born to an illiterate mother is less likely to survive into adulthood. Without an education, children are especially vulnerable to abuse and exploitation, such as being trafficked, forced to marry young, or made to work in hazardous conditions. As many as 100 million young people around the world are still illiterate, but you can help change that!
In the U.S., your gift will help equip kids with the gift of literacy by:
- Providing access to a digital application that includes a virtual library of 400+ books (provided through World Vision partner, Worldreader).
- Encouraging interaction between children and caregivers through the app which includes literacy activities, and age-appropriate, culturally relevant books in multiple languages.
Along with U.S. kids, your investment will reach children in Rwanda by:
- Equipping teachers, providing training and resourcing to support government-approved reading programs.
- Establishing reading camps, making reading fun and engaging outside of a school environment. These reading clubs also loan books for children—sometimes the first book a child has been able to take home!
- Empowering parents, equipping families to cultivate successful reading with their children.
Thank you for your heart for children and for helping them to receive the essential literacy skills they need!
“I believe God can make a way when there is no way. Reading was the way God brought me to where I am now. And I want to share the transformative power of reading with every student.”
— Debbie Macomber, World Vision celebrity ambassador
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
