As we prepare for our 10-year anniversary celebration and fundraiser, “A Decade in the Books”, I wanted to share a quick snapshot of A to Z Literacy Movement.
Our Mission: A to Z Literacy Movement is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that improves the lives of impoverished children through literacy development.
The Need: Literacy development is critical for rebuilding communities struck by poverty and disease while improving public education efficacy.
Our Approach: Literacy development requires more than books. A to Z and its partners provide a variety of resources necessary for effective literacy promotion including book delivery, local literacy support, and high-quality teacher instruction.
Our Partners and Supporters: Strong relationships with indigenous organizations are essential for success. A to Z works directly with local organizations that understand the specific challenges and solutions associated with literacy development in the region, such as All Kids Can Learn International and Shine Reading Academy.
- To provide professional development for 125 Zambian teachers
- To provide books locally for at-risk children and students with special needs
- To ship four separate shipments of children’s books to impoverished communities/schools
- To build partnerships while providing professional development to schools in Zambia
Without YOU, our generous supporters and volunteers, we would not be able to sustain our literacy work. Because of YOU, our generous supporters and volunteers, we have had tremendous success both locally and globally.
Please consider coming out to Smith’s Central Garage on Saturday, Feb. 2nd from 5:00–8:00, to celebrate the past ten years of A to Z Literacy Movement while helping us to raise funds for our upcoming season of shipping books overseas, supporting teachers in Zambia, and getting books into the hands of children locally.
