About Purple Turtle Foundation

Purple Turtle wants to bring smiles and learning to children in need through the experience of books, toys and play.

So, he started the Purple Turtle Foundation!

Because…

  1. Children living in poverty do not have access to quality resources and learning materials
  2. Kids in low-income families have few options other than leaving school and work
  3. Nearly a billion people even in the 21st century do not have the basic ability to read or write
  4. If all students in low-income countries gained basic reading skills, 171 million people could be out of poverty

As more people have access to education, poverty goes down. Helping kids to educate themselves improves the most crucial aspects of their life–money, health, gender equality, peace and stability.

We accept support from individuals, foundations, governments and others who help us raise substantial funds to deliver high-quality learning resources to children even in the most remote areas.
