Help Us Raise $200K for 200 Kids and Transform a Child’s Life Today!

Your charitable donation will help LDS and our dedicated expert instructors transform the lives of at least 200 vulnerable kids with learning differences, like dyslexia, who urgently need education support and cannot afford it. With your help, we can empower them so they can catch up to their classmates, gain confidence, and succeed in school and in life. 


Until December 31, 2022, every dollar you donate WILL BE MATCHED by a generous LDS supporter, doubling your impact and helping us transform the lives of our most vulnerable learners in 2023.

One in 10 Canadian children has a learning difference (LD).

Consistent learning support is especially critical for students with LDs. Even during the best of times, students with LDs struggle to keep up with their peers academically. Within the public education system, we see a mindset that each school can and does support every student’s learning needs. While this is a laudable aspiration, the reality is that few schools have the human resources, finances, or expertise to fully support students with learning disabilities to the extent required for these students to succeed.

Your support and giving allow children with LDs to build confidence, learn how to learn with their disability, and increase their chances of succeeding in school and life.
