What would you miss most if you could not read or write? Imagine your world without words.

Let’s join together and read aloud for a collective 774 million minutes in support of the 774 million people worldwide who cannot read or write.

With this global rally we show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people and we lend all our voices to the Global Literacy Movement.

Let the children of the world know we believe in the power of words and stories to change their lives. 

I know the day is coming when global literacy isn’t fiction. I don’t know how long it will take, but I know that day will come.” – 10 year-old World Read Aloud Day Participant
