Welcome to Share Literacy
“The Magic of Reading” is an informative and entertaining video on the value of reading Teaching-Stories to children. It includes a presentation of The Boy Without a Name.
Over the past 16 years, with the help of grants from several foundations and many individual donors, Share Literacy has served over 690,000 disadvantaged children in the U.S. and other countries. We provide books and training materials, plus professional development services at cost. We rely on donations and grants to cover these costs to enable us to continue our services and expand.
OUR FOCUS THIS YEAR …
Hoopoe paperbacks are universal stories, beautifully illustrated with images from Central Asia and the Middle East – the area from which they originated centuries ago and one that is often misunderstood in our country today.
We are seeking funds to provide books to elementary schools whose students include Afghan, Pakistani or Middle Eastern children. In this way we hope to help young readers and their families from all backgrounds realize how much we have in common and can learn from each other.

Mission and goals:
Our mission is to address and reduce the growing literacy gap between rich privileged and poor at risk children and their families. Share Literacy promotes the development of reading and thinking skills by partnering with established early childhood education agencies serving poverty-level and low-income families, with after-school programs and with organizations providing ESL and adult literacy instruction.
