PAM ALLYN & LITWORLD
Pam Allyn is the founding director of LitWorld, a global literacy initiative serving children across the United States and in more than 60 countries. Based on statistics showing that at least 793 million people remain illiterate (two-thirds of them being women), LitWorld was founded in 2008 to cultivate global literacy leaders through transformational literacy experiences that build connection, understanding, resilience and strength. A nationally recognized literacy expert, Pam Allyn is an author and a motivational speaker advocating for reading and writing as human rights that belong to all people. Her personal quest to bring literacy to every child stems from a deeper desire to bring dignity to every child, and to empower children to read and write powerfully, effectively and with passion in ways that will change their worlds and the worlds of others.
