Reading Owls is guided by the belief that reading is the key to unlocking a child's full potential. To that end, we are committed to increasing the literacy levels of Jamaican school-aged children by providing books and learning resources toschools and other organizations to expand existing libraries or to create new ones.
Today, only 24% of Jamaica's children demonstrate primary school readiness. A major reason for this performance shortfall is the limited resources of its schools and communities. By creating access to books, learning to read becomes an opportunity afforded to every boy and girl and opens doors to their future success.
