Our Mission

Our mission is to impact the lives of youth through literacy. Empowering youth with increased literary opportunities will bridge the ever widening chasm of education and economic achievement of communities in need. London Skye Global Literacy seeks to achieve this by providing literary opportunities, intervention, scholarships, and book donations. 

Who is London?

This nonprofit organization was established on August 15, 2021 in honor of our little angel bookworm who could devour a 1,000 page book in a matter of days. London Skye Williams was an avid reader who developed a love for reading at an early age.  Her love of reading encouraged her creativity and charisma to flourish, and our hope is to share that gift of reading that provided our daughter with countless hours of joy with children and families in our communities. 

 – Dondra & Vernon Williams
