Sustainability drives success. Every Reading Village program is implemented in partnership with the communities where we work, and our ultimate impact will not be seen for a generation. That said, we’ve got a model that works and we want to reach more kids in more communities!

Does your business or organization work in a community with low levels of literacy? Do you have trusted community partners to help roll out new programs? As we look to scale across boundaries and reach beyond Guatemala, we’re looking for partner organizations established in marginalized communities and interested in promoting literacy and education. If you think your organization would be a good fit, let’s talk! We’ve got the program model and training resources that you need to change lives!

Currently LAL works with a Guatemalan organization to identify local opportunities and challenges. Many new public middle schools (Básicos) are being started in isolated indigenous villages so that children can continue their education beyond primary school. But at the same time, few of the new schools have books for either the teachers or the students.
