The poverty cycle is broken

171 million people could be lifted out of poverty if they were equipped with basic reading skills at a young age. By focusing educational support on children who need it most, we can ensure that no child is born at risk of ending up on the street.

In 2017, Jumpstart helped over

12,000

children from under-resourced communities to advance literacy skills

Reading Is Fundamental
has distributed over

415 million books

& impacted the
lives of more than
40 million
children

Help our partners continue their amazing work, and give more people roofs over their head.
