World Literacy of Canada's overseas program works in Northern India, Nepal and Sri Lanka to improve the lives of impoverished people through literacy, education and community development.
WLC believes in a holistic, integrated approach towards literacy and community development and tries to develop its programs with sensitivity to the needs and the cultural context of those communities with which it works.
The story of Birdi Num um introduces the reader to the Hindi language and Indian culture, and is a pleasure to read for both children and adults. Birdi's adventures also teach us to give, help, and share.
