Reading unlocks

Reading unlocks opportunity. Words—spoken or written—are the building blocks of life. Reading develops our minds and helps us make sense of ourselves and the world around us. People who read improve their earning potential, increase their chance of breaking the cycle of poverty and create inner capacity to build healthier and more equitable societies.
