Walkers support Global Literacy

The fall weather was brisk and organizers feared that it would rain but a break in the weather allowed over 25 organizations, family groups, and other interested individuals to follow the scenic route. In fact it made for a wonderful sense of solidarity and excitement among all the walkers.

Funds raised from the walk will assist in expanding our local “Take Reading Home” programs in New Jersey as well as GLP’s innovative “Classroom Connections” program that links South African and Kenyan school children with New Jersey students. The program also trains the teachers teaches them how to introduce fundamental ideas of human rights and common aspirations that all students share in the classroom. By raising their awareness of children’s and women’s rights, students and teachers can begin to address these issues in their wider communities.
