It's time to celebrate: Reading Village is celebrating it's 10th year! Your investment in literacy, education and youth leadership is breaking the cycle of generational poverty in the Mayan communities where we work. This year 67 teens are in high school & are providing reading activities to 3,350 children thanks to partners like you. The building blocks that make this possible are not bricks and mortar, but rather the critical ingredients of developing human capacity.
