Stories are the answer.

NITEO exists to support children to develop the literacy skills needed to build bright and hopeful futures.

We do this through strategic global and Canadian partnerships.

Globally, we partner with grassroots organizations to supply community libraries by collecting and shipping gently used books from Kelowna, Canada to Kampala, Uganda.

We build capacity through training Literacy Leaders – teachers, high school students, community leaders, elders, and parents.

We support literacy learning through open-sourced resources – When We Give Children Books and Leadership in Literacy Micro-credential.

We intentionally build relationships between grassroots leaders and volunteers across the globe. 

Locally, we collect donations of gently used books to send to Uganda.

Locally, we invest in newcomer and refugee families through our Story As Community Family Reading Program in Kelowna and Vernon (coming March 2023!).
