    Childhood is the time when critical foundational development occurs — or doesn’t. ChildFund’s Just Read! program encourages some of the most vulnerable children in the U.S. to read, develop a more positive attitude toward reading and education and build strong relationships with their peers and families.

    Join us in helping children in the U.S. break the cycle of poverty — and truly change lives — with your gift right now to Just Read!
