  • In partnership with LitWorld, a non-profit organization based in New York advocating for and working towards global literacy, we are going to “Take Action for Global Literacy, Celebrate the Power of Words, Change the World.” March 7 is World Read Aloud Day.

    World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.

    We are looking for teachers, schools, school children who want to participate in this World Read Aloud Day on March 7. Thru Skype, we can read aloud to each other across the globe.
