1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read.
We believe everyone should have the chance to reach their full potential.
MISSION: Supporting education and social services providing programs for long term self sufficiency to empower women and children through literacy. We work to bring public and private sectors together with initiatives that serve our communities for the highest good.
We cannot achieve our goals alone.

Jenny’s Jungle Program-We Inspire and Empower Women and Children with Literacy
We delivered Jenny’s Jungle reading spaces to Home Start Maternity Division for women and children to enjoy reading together. This was our first hands-on collaboration both installing and providing a reading space for women. The mothers work together with program leaders towards the goal of self-sufficiency. Our donation included bookcases, stuffed animals and additional decor to bring hope and joy to moms and their little ones as they prepare for their future. Great adventures begin with a book!
Jenny's Jungle was placed in three YWCA San Diego shelters for children to have a safe, comfortable space to explore, imagine and dream through reading. We hear kids, moms (and dads) are enjoying these special areas.
Delivery of over 400 books for Jenny's Jungle reading areas to be installed in three locations of the Becky's House Domestic Violence Shelters through YWCA San Diego.
Promoting Jenny's Jungle Book Drive on local news station KUSI San Diego for book drives throughout the county collecting books for three dedicated children's reading areas to support Becky's House Domestic Violence shelters at YWCA San Diego.
Creating a space to read
As children sit cozied next to their mothers, a new world is opening as together they turn the pages, laughing and growing more excited with each turn. Where will it lead them on their journey in life? It's all new and fresh, ready to explore the unknown, their hope grows and their spirits take flight with each adventure.
Your donation allows us to connect people and create partnerships that make a real difference. We are committed to projects with our partners, seeking the most constructive solutions.
