Summary

LitClubs bring children together once a week in a supportive literacy culture that value each child's personal narrative and the power that story has to change our lives and the world around us. This framework results in increased academic achievement, civic engagement, future outlook, and sense of personal value.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Literacy contributes positively to women's empowerment, in terms of self-esteem, economic independence and social emancipation and yet at least 523 million girls and women worldwide cannot read or write, and 61 million children of primary school age were out of school in 2010. By learning to read and write, all girls in the world can protect themselves against poverty, poor health outcomes and lifelong struggle. Literacy is a skill that once learned can never be taken away.

How will this project solve this problem?

LitClubs value the multidimensional lives of girls and place the highest value on the power of children's own stories. These voices and experiences shape our programs. Our focus is on the role of literacy not as an outcome, but as a powerful tool to help young people shape their futures and fully realize their own potential. LitWorld's strength-based model of social emotional learning builds resilience and the lifelong skills each girl will use to overcome adversity.

Potential Long Term Impact

LitClubs build self-confidence, promote leadership, and strengthen children and their communities. LitClub girls will be a new generation of leaders, storytellers and academic achievers, effecting change for themselves, their communities, and their world.
