An alarming number of children enter school without the language and literacy foundation they need to succeed — a situation with profound implications for their lives and for society. The good news is that almost all children can greatly increase their reading through early intervention programs. To date through Share Literacy, ISHK has donated over 650,000 books to early childhood literacy and school programs serving preK-Gr. 8, and we need to do more. Share Literacy relies on donations and grants to cover its direct expenses: production and printing of materials and professional development costs. Your contribution will go a long way to help. For more information on this program, go to www.shareliteracy.org.

Hoopoe Books are universal stories, beautifully illustrated with images from Central Asia and the Middle East – the area from which they originated centuries ago. This year we are seeking funds to provide books to elementary schools with Afghan/Pakistani/Middle Eastern children. In this way we hope to help young readers and their families realize how much we have in common and can learn from each other.

Studies show that children who learn to read in the language they speak at home develop literacy skills more easily and are more easily able to transfer these essential skills and a love of reading to other languages. Hoopoe Books have distributed over 4 million paperbacks in Afghanistan’s main languages, providing Dari-Pashto bilingual editions to schools, orphanages and street-children. This year we hope to expand our program to include minority languages such as Turkmen, Uzbek, Swaji, Pashai, and Nuristani. This we will give many more thousands of children the chance to learn to read in the language of their mother tongue.

We provide traditional Teaching-Stories from Central Asia and the Middle East collected from oral and written sources and retold especially for early readers by the author and educator Idries Shah. Although Pakistan’s national language is Urdu and their official language English, the majority of children’s primary languages are different. Studies show that children who learn to read in the language they speak at home develop literacy skills more easily. These essential skills and a love of reading can then be transferred to other languages. Hoopoe has this series in four language editions: Urdu-English, Urdu-Sindhi, Urdu-Pashto and Urdu-Balochi, and we hope to develop Urdu-Punjabi editions before too long. Funds are needed to do this and to print and distribute the editions we have.

We are looking for literacy programs interested in receiving our book donations and companies and other funding sources to help with the costs of printing and distribution. Email us at hoopoebooks@aol.com.

We publish books that not only entertain but help children and young adults understand themselves and their world. Hoopoe books uncover the ancient and wonderful world of oral and written storytelling from a time before societies had formal schools when stories were the way in which everyone learned the much-needed universal lessons of tolerance and appreciation of all cultures. Through these stories the children of today can develop an understanding of the universality of our natures, our hopes and dreams and an appreciation of the diverse ways in which they are expressed.

Our “All About Me” series provides good, solid, scientifically validated information for teens and young adults to help them understand the challenges they face as they move into adolescence and become young adults.

With your support we will continue to publish traditional and modern tales from around the world from which young readers can both be entertained and learn.

If we know who we are, how human beings evolved, what our possibilities and weaknesses are, we might correctly assess what we can do to change, adapt, and create, so that humanity and the planet thrive. This website is dedicated to communicate new and relevant understandings in the human sciences which will help us gain such insight.

This year your support will help us redesign the website to make the content more accessible and easily available via mobile devices.
