We believe that even one book can change a child’s life.

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in Hungary struggle with reading and comprehension? United Way Hungary launched KÖNYFORGATÓ Literacy Program in 2014 to promote reading and to help children improve their reading and comprehension skills. We organize BookDrives at companies on a regular basis, as well as mobilize individual donors to collect as many gently used children’s books as possible to be distributed among children aged 7-14 – especially those coming from disadvantaged families – through institutions (primary schools and orphanages).


Comprehensive reading


If children’s reading and comprehension skills are not well developed at the right time they will loose their chance to dream bigger and deploy their potential. More

JOY Magazine’s charity action


JOY Magazine and Lapker Zrt. have also started supporting the KÖNYVFORGATÓ Program by donating 20 Forints from the sale of each November copy sold in order to develop children’s reading comprehension. More
