The Sisters Mission

Sisters Thru Survival not only believe that women should live happy, healthy, productive lives, we feel that way about our children as well.  Statictics show that 40% of children that are not reading and comprehending by the fourth grade stand a 50-50 chance of dropping out of school.

Learning begins at home, we know that. But in many homes the only books are the books the kids bring home from school. We we want to change that, and with your help and First Books, we can. 

Sisters Thru Survival is on a mission. We have chosen one school to focus our efforts, if we are successful, other schools will be added. We can order new book through First Books. The books are free but we have to pay for shipping, and that's where you come in with your donations.  Each month working with teachers from the chosen school, we will order a set of books that will be given to the children to take home. it is our hope that this will encourage the students to read at home, and encourage the parents to read to their children. The books are theirs to keep  and build a library of their own. 

Regular updates on the progress of the students updates will be posted on our Facebook page and this website.

We all know the importance of reading, and this is a way for all of us to contribute to the learning growth of the children in our community.
