Give the Gift of Reading

Create Opportunities for Under-Served Children Through Literacy

Reading is the single most important skill a child needs — yet many lack access to books. Founded in 2018 by Alayin Rey to honor his Zakariya al Razi, Child Survival strives to make books accessible to all children.

Child Survival Pledges to Distribute 1 Million Books

The Child’s Survival Project gives books to children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life. 

We aim to create a more socially just world by providing books for free to under-resourced children. Literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and lifetime outcomes, yet children in economically disadvantaged communities do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers. The Child Survival Project is committed to closing the opportunity gap and lifting up community by raising readers.
We are an independent movement on behalf of the Razi Museum under the guidance and support of Mr. Alayin Rey, Director and Chief Curator of the Razi Museum
