Back to School with USA Reads

Join us to get ready for back to school by donating $10 to celebrate the beginning of the new school year! USA Reads is aiming to reach 10,000 children this September by providing book distributions to areas in need.

We all might be getting ready for the fall festivities, yet this time is going to be a little different for many for the most affected families around the States who are now facing immense financial stress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This situation is affecting parents’ decisions to support their children’s education. This fall USA Reads – an Initiative of The World Literacy Foundation – is committed to support our communities with all our efforts focused on giving the gift of literacy to children in need.

USA Reads is a national initiative of the World Literacy Foundation striving to close the literacy and reading gap. We focus on children and families who are the most at risk of illiteracy. The reality behind the literacy statistics amongst children in the United States is startling. In America alone, almost 60% of children from disadvantaged backgrounds do not own a single book and one in four  children struggle to read and write. These numbers are continuously growing.Most of these children who face a life of illiteracy are located in disadvantaged zip codes across the United States of America.All children deserve access to opportunities that support them to learn to read and thrive—in school, at home, and in the community. Yet, for millions of US children, their families, and their communities, access to such opportunities is affected by historic and present-day policies and practices that work in reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic inequities.Children from low-income families and children of color do not have the same access to high-quality early childhood development opportunities as do their peers. Their skills in reading development are lower. The “literacy gap” start early and result in much lower rates of college completion and social mobility for these children. While a high-quality education is important across a child’s life, much of the brain’s development occurs during the early years. This makes it an essential time to reduce “word gap” disparities and improve the lives of children.
