About Us

The Global Literacy Project, Inc. (GLP), is a New Jersey based nonprofit and tax-exempt [501 (C) 3] organization, conceptualized for the purpose of fostering community-based literacy initiatives throughout the world. In a given High Literacy Cluster (HLC), our success will be measured by individuals experiencing a shift of consciousness that dramatically and permanently alters their way of being in the world.

  • The GLP initiative began in 1999-2000 with Dr. Olubayi Olubayi from Kenya; Mr. Denniston Bonadie from St. Vincent & the Grenadines in the Caribbean; Ms. Diana Dade, Dr. Thelma Tate and Ms. Sivan Yosef from New Jersey, USA; Dr. Edward Ramsamy, originally from South Africa; Dr. Emeka Akaezuwa from Nigeria; Ms. Kavitha Ramachandran, an Indian-American; and Mr. Wendel Thomas, from St. Croix and Dominica in the Caribbean. Ms. Camille Mahon (New Jersey, USA) joined the board in 2008.

  • Our initial project was the shipment of 17,000 books in Summer 2000 to Africa. However, we have now expanded our mission to address the Caribbean--partnering with Caribbean agencies for community developmnet, as well as South Asia (India) through two local NGOs.

  • GLP attracts serious participation from many people. Some participants are motivated by the twin advantages of linking potential book donors with potential beneficiaries and simultaneously contributing to environmental preservation under the motto: Books for "brainfills" not landfills.

  • Other participants are driven by a humane desire to help people in economically poorer countries acquire literacy, education and development. Our student participants seem to have the noblest of motivations: global citizenship based on a much broader conception of the globe as a diverse but unified human community.

Global citizenship- Matching local needs to global resources.
