Sharing Hope and Wisdom – SHAW Foundation

Catalyst for Literacy

The key to literacy is reading development, but Literacy is more than reading and writing, it includes competence or knowledge in a specified area. It’s the way we expand on our communication.

The SHAW Foundation is building Literacy around the globe with a ripple impact!
