Childhood literacy is, very simply, what children know about reading or writing. When children have learned literacy skills they are at a distinct advantage when learning to read.
The development of language and literacy begins at birth, with parents and caregivers serving as a child's teacher. Reading for Life Foundation is here to support children in this lifelong learning process!
Adult literacy can change everything. Health, gender equality, poverty are all important social issues that are impacted by low literacy.
When individuals learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they have the power to lift themselves out of poverty, lower health care costs, find and keep sustainable employment, and ultimately change their lives.
On average, teachers spend $800 of their own money on school supplies for their students and classroom. The goal of Tools-4- Schools is to lower this cost to our educators.
Reading for Life Foundation supports Tools-4-Schools. Individuals, organizations, and businesses are encouraged to become a part of this program by volunteering time to help sort and distribute supplies to teachers.

STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Education
STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy.
