Mission Statement


Our mission is to give teachers and community members the tools so that people in impoverished communities can develop a love of reading. We collect books and educational materials in the Bay Area and send them to developing nations using the US Navy's Project Handclasp.

Description

Literate Planet is a resource and free service that trades donated books and educational supplies from the United States for letters and hand drawn pictures from students in developing nations. These letters and pictures go back to the donors and students in the United States that helped find and move the books. We are not a charity: students around the world need books and students and donors in the US want to take part in something greater than themselves.
