Reading Rocks

MDG was flabbergasted when she learned that 523 million girls cannot read or write. Isn’t that number astonishingly high? Well, Litworld thinks so and it’s on a mission to reduce it with the Stand Up for Girls Campaign.

You can join them by honoring the lives and stories of inspirational girls (and women) in celebration of the International Day of the Girl on October 11. Simply fill out a short form that includes a girl’s name and story that has shaped your life. Your voice will add strength to all of the world’s girls who cannot read, write or share their own stories … yet!
