The Global Literacy Project, Inc. (GLP) envisions a world where people work together across borders to share resources and solve global problems. GLP is committed to helping people become literate so that they can both negotiate the practical demands of survival and the abstract world of ideas and science. To this end we:
- Collect, sort, ship and distribute literacy materials (primarily books) for Africa, Asia (South India) and the Caribbean.
- Conduct educational and service learning programs aimed at improving knowledge, enhancing global awareness and developing skills in the USA and abroad.
- Connect, maintain and deepen relationships between recipient locations around the world and partner schools and institutions in the USA.
- Facilitate programs that increase public awareness of literacy issues.
