Literacy Changes Lives
At ProLiteracy, we've helped millions of people learn to read—so they can navigate grocery stores, understand prescription labels, help their children with homework, find decent jobs, and radically change the course of their lives. Here are some of their stories.

Make an impact.

Let's work together to solve the global literacy crisis—and to build a safer, stronger, and more prosperous world. With your support, we can:

  • Develop new, up-to-date educational materials for adult learners worldwide.
  • Provide training and resources for community literacy organizations and tutors.
  • Lobby for public policy changes that support adult literacy education and funding.
  • Create new community spaces, like the fully equipped adult literacy library and state-of-the-art computer center at our global headquarters.

Donate with confidence.
