The Dancing With The Stars pro has been helping a non-profit organization to help others learn how to read and write.


Peta Murgatroyd took to social media to encourage other people to support Alfalit International – a faith-based literacy project.

The organization helps provide literacy programs to the poorest areas around the world, as revealed by Entertainment Daily.

Murgatroyd recently posted on Instagram to ask her followers to consider making a donation to Alfalit International and help “make a difference.”

The post came with a photo of the dancer reading to her one-year-old son Shai. Her photo came with a long message talking about the non-profit organization.


Murgatroyd explained that during show nights, she can’t put little Shai to bed, which is why she makes sure she reads to her son bedtime stories around 6 pm.

She also said that more or less than 758 million individuals in the whole world don’t have the basic reading and writing skills.

She went on to write, ‘Literacy is the gateway to employment, better physical and emotional health, stronger families and communities and less crime.’

The 31-year-old dancer said she was ‘very fortunate’ to have had basic rights to education. She added that she is ‘even more fortunate’ that she is able to share those rights with her son.

Murgatroyd described Alfalit International as an organization that aims to eliminate illiteracy in the globe.

Her fans commended her for taking part in the project and helping to inform others about the organization.

Also, some of her followers declared that they also made a donation to support the project.


‘I just donated and my church matched my donation and donated as well. I hope it helps. You inspire me everyday!’ said one user.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Murgatroyd’s husband, also takes part in supporting the organization. In fact, he has been an Honorary Board Member for a number of years now.

The 37-year-old dancer has donated over $100,000 to the charity.

His brother, Val Chmerkovskiy also got himself involved in the project.
