Description

LitWorld is a 501C3 nonprofit organization led by Executive Director Pam Allyn, a renowned literacy educator and advocate. LitWorld cultivates literacy leaders worldwide through transformational literacy experiences that build connection, understanding, resilience and strength. LitWorld's mission grew from the work of LitLife, a literacy organization Pam Allyn founded in 2002, which serves to improve schools and learning practices on a national level, as well as Pam Allyn's Books for Boys initiative, which has been transforming the lives of at-risk youth living at the Dobbs Ferry's residential treatment center and school, The Children's Village, since 1999.

From its founding in 2007, LitWorld has exemplified the word global, reaching from Harlem to Nairobi to the Navajo Nation to Iraq to Ghana to Yonkers to Liberia. LitWorld joins together with teachers, parents, community members, and children to support sustainable literacy through the redemptive power of story in the world's most vulnerable communities. LitWorld educates community members to become literacy leaders through easy-to-use programs and resources and creates access to print materials that will help all children learn to read and write. Founded on the belief that children will grow to be empowered, intelligent, healthy, and productive global citizens through the power of literacy, LitWorld works towards this goal worldwide through Education, Advocacy and Innovation.
