Today is our founder, John Wood's birthday. Fourteen years after John changed his future after visiting a school in rural Nepal, he now can claim that nearly nine million children's futures have been changed through his work and the work of those who have joined him along the way. So happy birthday John--and thank you for bringing us along in your journey to change the world through education and literacy!
