What You'll Get

The Issue: Early Literacy Problems in Arizona

Forty-two percent of fourth graders in Arizona read below the basic level, according to 2011 Kids Count data. To address this critical issue, Southwest Human Development’s Raising A Reader program helps educate parents about the importance of early literacy skills and how they can build and improve these skills in their children. They accomplish this through a series of early literacy workshops and distribution of children’s books.

The Campaign: Provide Books for Children in Need

If this Grassroots campaign raises $600, then Southwest Human Development can contribute 120 books for three Raising A Reader programs. Each additional $200 raised will be used to provide 40 more books for another Raising A Reader program.

Raising A Reader is a national early-literacy program that helps low-income parents integrate books and storytelling into their family routines. Parents and children borrow more than 40 books during the eight-week program, and each participating child receives four new, age-appropriate books to keep at the end of the program.
