85% of DPSCD students fall into the literacy gap and require intense literacy tutoring. Data indicates that those who remain in the gap are on a crash-course toward poverty. Beyond Basics' literacy programming has gotten thousands of students reading since 2002, and we plan to help thousands more. By participating in our Sponsor a Child program, you can forever change the life of a struggling student through literacy. Maybe you can't change the world, but can you can change one person's world.
