Why Literacy?

Imagine for a moment you couldn’t read…street signs, type on a computer or send a text message, apply for a job, fill out a form, write a check, read the instructions on your child’s bottle of medication, read them a story. What would your day-to-day life be like?

          For 757 million of the world’s men, women and children that is their reality.

Ready for Reading was founded on the belief that literacy and education are not only basic human rights, but the foundation of prosperity, and in Rwanda, peace. Our vision is that literacy becomes the expectation, not the exception.
