From bringing e-books to a single school in Ghana
to reaching over 16 million readers in 48 countries,
here’s a glimpse at Worldreader’s
journey over the last 10 years.
What if we could use technology to reach people in places where books are scarce and make it easier for those people to read? Maybe, we thought, this could finally be the solution to ending illiteracy.
And we keep learning more every day. One of the most valuable things we understood early on reminds us of an African Proverb: if you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together. Partnerships have been instrumental to our impact. The support we’ve received along the way and the partnerships we’ve developed with like-minded organizations have enabled us to scale and create impact beyond our wildest dreams.
We’re 10 years old and have so far reached over 16 million readers around the world. We can’t wait to reach the next billion and help readers build a better world.
