3 SHARP EDMONDS SHARP LLP CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS PARTNERS John A. Sharp, CA Joseph A. Edmonds, CA P. Donald Sharp, CA INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT To the Officers and Directors of: World Literacy Of Canada We have audited the accompanying financial statements of World Literacy Of Canada which comprise the balance sheet as at March 31, 2011 and the statements of income, and cash flows for the year then ended and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor's Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian auditing standards. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity's preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of World Literacy Of Canada as at March 31, 2011, and its financial performance and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles.

8 NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS MARCH 31, Accounting Policies (a) World Literacy of Canada is incorporated in Ontario as a non share capital corporation. It promotes literacy in Canada and Asia through support of local literacy programs. It is a charitable organization as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada) and may issue charitable receipts for donations received. (b) Property, plant and equipment Plant, property and equipment are recorded at cost. Amortization is calculated on the declining balance basis at rates based on the estimated useful lives of the assets as disclosed in note 3. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the term of the lease, plus one renewal, on a straight line basis. Half the indicated rate is used in the year of acquisition. (c) Revenue recognition and deferred revenue The organization is using the deferral method of accounting for contributions. Under the deferral method of accounting for contributions, restricted contributions related to expenses of future periods are deferred and recognized as revenue in the period in which the related expenses are incurred. Endowment contributions are reported as direct increases in the net assets. All other contributions are reported as revenue in the current period. The organization does not set up donation pledges as accounts receivable. In Kind donations of goods and services are not reflected in these financial statements (d) Program costs Program costs are reported as paid. The amount committed to programs is shown as an internally restricted amount in net assets. A portion of salaries and operating costs are allocated from the organization's schedule of program and operating expenses to the appropriate program. (e) Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. (f) Investments Investments consist of marketable securities. The investments are classified as available for sale and are recorded at fair value as it is not management's primary objective to generate trading profits from shortterm fluctuations in price. Fair values are determined by reference to published price quotations in an active market at year-end. Transaction costs associated with the acquisition and disposal of investments are capitalized and are included in the acquisition cost or reduce the proceeds on disposal. The purchase and sale of investments are accounted for using trade-date accounting. 6.

It is management's opinion that the organization is not exposed to significant market, currency or credit risk arising from these financial instruments. It is management's opinion that the fair value of the financial instruments, other than marketable securities, is equal to the carrying value. The organization is exposed to interest risk on its marketable securities. Interest risk is the potential loss the organization may incur as a result of changes in the bank prime rate and the effect it may have on the cash flows from securities. See Schedule A for details of marketable securities. 7.
