Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to increase literacy and instill a love of learning in the children we come into contact with. With increased literacy rates, we hope these children will have access to more opportunities to allow them to lead more enriching and successful lives.

We hand deliver engaging books and school supplies to the schools on a yearly basis, and volunteers spend time at each school discussing reading programs and literacy, along with generating a sense of excitement and possibility in the hearts of the children.
