Challenge InfoStudents Rebuild's goal is to o improve youth reading and writing skills around the world. Students, teacher, or fact anyone can help with this movement by making book marks. More bookmarks equals more money raised for the cause. Each bookmark sent , the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1 to Save the Children’s Literacy Boost program in Peru, Mali and Nepal.

More than 2,500 primary schools have been set up in Mali to inforce basic education at the elementary level and yet the literacy rate in MAli is 46%. Another area of concern is the adult literacy rate. Almost 60% of the total adult Mali population is illiterate.
