Imagine not being able to read or write your own name. 775 Million people worldwide are functionally illiterate, preventing them from acquiring jobs, have access to healthcare or create better lives for their families. Literacy is the key to many of the world issues of poverty and illness.
In 2017, Carly Peeters created the Literally Literacy Foundation to raise awareness and spread resources that promote literacy. In keeping with its goal to spread literacy across the globe, our organization has helped build schools in remote islands of Camarines Sur (Philippines) and Baie Trinite (Haiti).
It is the mission of the Literally Literacy Foundation to eradicate illiteracy worldwide by teaching children key language and literacy skills and giving them access to education, because just one child and one book can change the world.
