Peace Works United and Tacoma-George Sister City Committee Presents 

The Read Well Challenge

We are inviting you to join us in raising money to support 400 3rd and 4th graders in George South Africa on improving their reading skill and comprehension. 

The collaboration is between Peace Works United & Tacoma George Sister City Committee in the US and Womb to Tomb, a Non Governmental Organization in South Africa. 

Womb to Tomb has defined the problem as 78% of South Africa's children in grades 3rd and 4th can not read for meaning.  

We are excited to be part of the solution by providing them with a Holiday gift of personalized books that feature their name and family members as main characters in the story. Each book is a small cost of 20 dollars. When we reach our goal, we will donate any excess funds to Greentrike Children's Museum and the Parkland Literacy Center at Pacific Lutheran University. When the story is about them, they will surely understand.

Thank you for your involvement.
