Keep Children Reading is a distance-learning initiative to support vulnerable children during the Covid-19 education crisis and beyond.
For vulnerable students across the world, the threat of Covid-19, an education system in crisis, and a lack of traditional resources like libraries and community centers, have made the need for a digital reading solution more urgent than ever.
