LitWorld is the most effective, practical non-profit I have ever encountered. Its work in literacy through the LitClubs and LitCamps actually and truly impacts the kids it works with in life-changing ways. LitWorld understands that the deepest work is in the details, and that the nuts and bolts, real-life execution of its literacy programming is how it will achieve its goals. At the same time, the mission is joyful, and deeply human, and connected to the biggest pictures possible. It is about giving the tools of story and literacy, and changing perspectives so that the poorest child sees the world in an entirely new light as a place of opportunity and hope. LitWorld partners with local community leaders, always working harmoniously with the communities it serves. Pam Allyn's vision and drive and passion infuse the entire organization. LitWorld knows the pain so many children are suffering, but even more it knows the joy that lies within them, and it enables kids to nurse and tend to that joy to strengthen it into confident, literate adulthood.
