From impoverished to empowered

Providing literacy education to transform individuals and communities

Our Proven Path to Change

773 Million Adults Around the World Are Illiterate

Without the ability to read, write and count, employment is scarce, financial exploitation is rampant and millions of families go hungry. These individuals lack access to education, food, and a way out. 773 million people don't need to suffer when there is a clear path to empowerment.

At ReWrite Life, we provide literacy education for more than 23,500 people a year, resulting in transformed lives and communities across the globe.

Our India Partnership

In India, Dr. Kamala Chiranjivi was born as the fourth daughter to a poor Dalit, or lowest caste family. Despite an impoverished upbringing coupled with the cultural barriers young women in India face, Dr. Kamala quickly learned the importance of education. She holds a Masters in Chemistry and a PhD in both Education and in Economics. Dr. Kamala developed the literacy programs and uses education to bring freedom to the oppressed through literacy and holistic development.
