Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

Changing the world, one magazine, one reader at a time

We’ve established that magazines are enormously powerful for literacy, because there are titles for every reading age, interest, and language. This table shows where English, Spanish, and French language is spoken by territory, indicating a long list of places around the world where, with literacy need identified, and an invitation, we can have an impact. Our ultimate goal is to make reading materials available in all native or first languages, but we have to start somewhere. We have excellent access to English and Spanish language magazines in the U.S. and potentially good access to French language magazines in the U.S. and especially Canada. We’ve had good success partnering with international relief organizations, company sponsors, and travelers to get our magazine literacy materials to readers overseas. We’ve already delivered magazines to the Arctic, Jamaica, Croatia, Uganda, and Honduras. We are seeking publishing and humanitarian partners to expand our literacy reach. Join us. Tell the world.
