BATON ROUGE (April 10, 2018) - WGI, the international organization educating people around the world to stop illiteracy, today celebrated its fourth anniversary. WGI was founded on April 10th, 2014 by then 14 year old Chance Wilson. Wilson was mobilized to action after learning about the dire impacts of illiteracy around the world.

“I remember the beginning days of WGI like it was yesterday” commented WGI Founder, Chairman & CEO Chance Wilson. “At the time, it was just me and an idea to help others. What it has transformed into is just truly remarkable.”

Four years later, WGI has grown from its infancy to a major, sustained international organization supporting people from all walks of life. WGI operates in key hubs around the globe and has built a track record of service in North America, across Africa, and over to Asia.

“This is a major milestone on the path to lasting impact for WGI” added WGI Vice Chairman Paul Dietzel. “Our teams around the world are positioned to continue doing great work creating a legacy of literacy. I am proud of WGI's past and excited about its future.”
