Through our First Teachers project, over the past six years:
100 League members have served on this project which means over 100 women in our community have the knowledge to teach others about the importance of reading aloud.

These women have taught 1,586 parents that they are their child's first teacher and given to these families 1,655 books.

Our Sustainer project, First Teachers Too, trained 48 league sustainer volunteers over the past five years, served 1,320 children and gave 2,580 books to children to keep.
