# Of Students Who Have Received Our Books
Whether it’s adopting a classroom, an entire school, hospital, etc., our objective is to enhance the lives of “all” children through literacy. With adoption, we will provide a full set of books for every child to take home as their own, in an effort to increase reading retention, teach core values, and create a positive belief system as well as higher self-esteem.
The 15 city combined birth rate is approximately 1.2 million per year. Our initial goal is to reach 25% of these households, which equates to 300,000 births. In addition, our first year target in each city is to get books into households with children under age 7. That provides an initial target of 1.8 million children.
