Less than 30% of sixth-graders in the heart of Latin America can understand a paragraph in the newspaper.

Mobilizing kids as everyday heroes.
We empower kids to be there for other kids.
In 2020, our 100+ Kid Teachers aim to spend 7,000+ hours teaching first-graders how to read.
We help our kids practice skills like empathy, teamwork, and conflict resolution.
Our Superkids become powerful activists. They have presented on children’s issues on the radio and in the Senate.
