Over the past year, school closures have exposed and widened learning gaps. It is more important than ever that children find the spark that ignites their passion and empowers them to be learners and doers. That’s what CDF Freedom Schools books do.
The carefully chosen books we provide are the best of the best—and that’s what the children we serve deserve. The books demonstrate that our scholars can make a difference in themselves, their families, their community, their country, and the world with hope, education, and action. They feature heroes who look like our CDF Freedom Schools scholars, allowing them to connect in a way they might not have before. The characters’ experiences are familiar and resonate with the scholars’ lived experiences. Representation matters, and it works.
