The children in our community suffer from a lack of reading in their daily lives. They are often 2-3 grade levels behind in their reading comprehension levels. We started the NDN Literacy Program as a way to help the kids in our community become literate and to give them the tools they need to be successful in school and in life. Our volunteers work one on one with the children to help them understand what they are reading and work to increase their vocabulary. We provide them with free books that they can use to become better readers.
