Literacy has the Power to lift Families out of Poverty

Literacy Day 2010

Literacy has the power to lift families out of poverty in one generation and change the fate of entire communities, particularly in the developing world. Let's make this International Literacy Day really mean something and help more people learn to read. Check out the information below on what else you can do to make a difference!

Tweet for Literacy

Tweet a scrambled message to your followers so they know what it's like to be illiterate. They can click on the link to decipher it.

  • When you cannot read, one hundred forty characters mean nothing. Help promote global literacy: http://t.co/W5UTbuB

Raise a glass for Literacy

Buy a bottle of Twitter's Fledgling wine to provide books and libraries to children struggling to read in India.

Purchase a bottle of wine

The Fledgling Initiative is a partnership between Twitter and Room to Read in support of providing literacy and quality educational opportunities to children in the developing world.

With help from Crushpad Winery, we've crafted two very special wines, a Pinot Noir and a Chardonnay.

Five dollars from the sale of every bottle will help establish libraries and provide books to children in one of the poorest regions in India. Learn more at www.fledglingwine.com

Create a children's book

In many developing countries, children don't have access to books written in their own language.

Help Publish a Book

Room to Read publishes children's books in 22 languages and distributes them throughout its library network in Asia and Africa.

In honor of International Literacy Day and throughout September, help us produce the book "Unjani" or "How Are You," an original South African children's book written in Xhosa and English.

Your donation will be matched thanks to a Room to Read donor. And, we're dedicating this book to all you social media mavens out there and can't wait to show it to you via Twitter!
