Kiawah Cares’ partner Begin With Books (BWB) asks us to
- Imagine a world where all children love to read.
- Imagine a world where all children start school on a level playing field.
- Imagine a world where all children reach their full potential.
Making that world a reality is part of Kiawah Cares’ mission. Literacy is a major part of what we do and BWB plays an important role on the Sea Islands. The program fills a unique niche, reaching children before they become students, with monthly book deliveries for children from birth to age five.
BWB helps promote a pre-literacy foundation for learning, a much-needed advantage for underprivileged children. Kiawah Cares funds 300 of the 855 Sea Island children enrolled in the program this year.
