Get the whole world reading.

People who read achieve better educational success, improve their earning potential, and lead healthier, happier lives. We are looking for partners and supporters who share our vision of transforming communities through the power of reading.

The need is urgent. The world is in the midst of a global learning crisis.

53 percent of children in low -and middle- income countries cannot read and understand a simple story by the end of primary school. As the leading digital reading specialist,
Worldreader works with partners to address this crisis by bringing digital
books to millions of children and youth.

Help us support readers across the Global South

Worldreader supports reading programs in five regions,
while readers across 47 countries benefit from our digital library.

The approach that gets results

We combine books, technology, and programming to provide reading solutions that support readers around the world.




Children and youth benefit from our library of  thousands of high-quality, culturally relevant books that inspire and educate.

Our experts provide trainings for schools, libraries, and families to make sure readers get the most out of reading programs.

Whether it’s through e-readers, tablets, or mobile phones, readers benefit from a digital library on affordable, state-of-the-art devices.

Support children at school and home with BookSmart

The BookSmart reading solution brings the power and joy of reading to schools, educational programs, and homes.
BookSmart for schools includes a subscription to 150+ culturally relevant, curricularly aligned books. Running on full-color Android tablets, students will be engaged with content that supports lesson plans across a variety of subjects. But the learning doesn’t stop there. BookSmart for home allows parents and caregivers to access a library from their mobile phones so they can support their children’s learning outside of school.

Help us support millions more readers

Everyone in the world deserves the power, opportunity, and joy that reading brings.
With the support of partners, donors, and funders, we’re getting closer to making that happen every day.
