Who We Are

 

As  a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Reading Kingdoms is a free program  that transforms a space into a magical environment that stimulates  healthy brain development in the vicinity of a struggling elementary  school. Children will come after school and during the summer to read  with support, and experience the joy of reading for fun. We facilitate  the importance of building a healthy brain from zero to three years old.  Even though this is a free program, families must volunteer time to  ensure Reading Kingdoms’ mission and vision. Parents will be invited to  read to their children, and participate actively in their child’s  educational success as a partnership. Our name Reading Kingdoms  originated from the idea that it is a majestic place to entice  children’s imagination.

How We Impact

 

Approximately,  five thousand children within the city of Pawtucket, Rhode Island live  in families below the federal poverty threshold, according to KidsCount.  With the help of donations, Reading Kingdoms will open their doors to a  literacy program that will allow children to discover, relax, learn and  dream from the pages of a book. Recent studies show almost 50% of  pregnancies are between the ages of 15-19 years old (KidsCount).
