Title of the tool


Short description

A literacy club is a Kiwanis club that focuses on raising the literacy levels of children. There are many ways to accomplish that purpose. Some of those methods will be discussed here, but the possibilities are limited only by the imagination of Kiwanians like you. Some of the projects that raise literacy are reading to children, providing books directly or indirectly to schools or children, tutoring children and providing useful subject lessons to teachers.
