Behind the book

Behind the book is a literary arts nonprofit organization that promotes literacy among students in schools in poor neighbourhoods of New York City.
I think organizations like this do such an important job. We often forget that the best thing we may do for children in hard situations is to help them and encourage them to use their imagination and be more creative. That way, we´ll be giving them the tools they need to escape the world they live in and imagine a better life. Because, how would they work on a better life for themselves if they can´t even imagine it?
Do you know any similar organization in England?
