Join Students Rebuild, Save the Children and Global Nomads Group to improve youth reading and writing skills around the world! To participate, make and mail in a bookmark. For each bookmark you send in, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1—up to $300,000—to Save the Children’s Literacy Boost program in Latin America (Peru), Africa (Mali) and Asia (Nepal). The more bookmarks you send, the more children you’ll help!
Why are reading and writing so important? Illiteracy can lead to poverty, low self-esteem and isolation, poor health, unemployment / weak economies, inequality and more. Worldwide, 250 million children of primary school age cannot read or write—whether they attend school or not. More than 30 million girls are out of school today and children from the poorest 20% of the population are four times more likely to be out of school than their wealthier peers. So take action and see change right now!
Save the Children will distribute a selection of your bookmarks to Literacy Boost students around the world. Funding generated by the Challenge will stock Save the Children’s international book banks in Peru, Mali and Nepal, improve school attendance, reading comprehension and self-confidence.
