Our vision is of a proud and thriving Guatemala that loves to read, where children grow up able to realize their full potential.
With a focus on children, we work collaboratively with the residents of impoverished villages to create programs that develop a culture of reading.
Watch a two-minute video on the inspiration behind Reading Village.
Every child should be able to grow up free to express their fullest self, give what they have to contribute to their families, their communities, their countries and the world.
Access to books, the ability to read, and to think critically and imaginatively are fundamental to the full development of individuals and society.
Poverty is a human construct and not a natural condition. It can be eliminated. The world is as we shape it.
