Reading For Life
The NHBW literacy initiative is a grassroots movement established to help raise reading levels for students across the country. The goal is to attack the systemic reading epidemic. The plan is to not only be a resource for grade school students but for children in daycares/nursery schools as well.
Our mission is to provide the tools and resources to combat this epidemic at the ground level. WE plan to put a book in every home and support parents as the child’s first and most important teacher. We plan to increase literacy and promote a child’s successful transition into the educational school system through outreach and awareness to parents about the importance of reading readiness for children birth through 5 years of age.
The goal is to increase the percentage of students reading by the time they enter kindergarten and establish a literacy based resource center for both daycares/nurseries and grade schools. Educational support systems are the key to keeping children in school, in the work force, off welfare, and away from criminal activities.
