My Education Room is pleased to support CODE (formerly the Canadian Organization for Development through Education) in our mutual quest to advance literacy and learning in Canada and around the world.
CODE is an amazing charity whose programs support the local publishing of engaging books for children and youth, to further develop the skills of educators and to support libraries empowering young people to reach their full potential for a brighter future.
$1 of every PAID lesson taken on My Education Room is donated to CODE!
THE BURT LITERACY AWARDS
Reading Code is the comprehensive readership initiative at the heart of CODE's programs in developing countries.
Together with local partners, the CODE team works with teachers, librarians, writers, and publishers to support and sustain the development of literacy learning in schools from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
The Burt Literary Awards program is a literary award and readership initiative that recognizes excellence in young adult literature and provides young readers with engaging books that they want to read.
First offered in Tanzania in 2008, the Burt Award is now offered in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Canada and the Caribbean and has resulted in the publication of over 220,000 copies of 45 new titles for young readers.
