A Global Book Ministry

As a philanthropic organization, Nikki House Books donates one book for every two books sold through our 3-for-2 Partnership Program on all titles to combat the fourth grade reading achievement gap. In the U.S. alone, there are over 20 million children aged 5 to 9 who may be enrolled in grades K to 3. However, amongst African American, Native American, and Latino children in this age range, only 18 to 21% of them will be reading at or above proficiency when they reach Grade 4. Globally, many of the 250 million children read below proficiency levels by Grade 4.

Thus, our prayer is that through our giving, both individually and in partnership with other philanthropic networks, we will play a major role in reversing these trends by granting access to leveled readers at such a critical stage in these children’s educational development.
