Our mission is to ensure that every child receives the lifelong gift of education. With the help of the "Oprah Winfrey Show"® we can dream big and reach our goal of establishing 20,000 bilingual libraries by the year 2020.

You can help change the world by donating today. Every dollar donated equals one book donated — $100 dollars equals 100 books — and an opportunity to change the lives of some of the 770 million illiterate people in the world.


Imagine a world where every child receives a quality education. 

Now, make it a reality.
