Founder of OrphanAid talks about the challenges of bringing reading programs to Ghana
Here’s a brief excerpt from a video conversation with Lisa Lovatt-Smith, founder of OrphanAid Africa. Lisa has been operating in Ghana for about eight years, and has taught us an enormous amount about doing work there. It’s about some of the challenges we’ll certainly face.
And: here are two articles from the Ghanian press about Worldreader’s first trials.
Worldreader believes that readers build a better world. We’re an online learning charity with a low-cost, high-technology approach, combining 21st-century education technology, culturally-relevant digital ebooks, and supportive programming to support the sustainable development goals – particularly improving learning outcomes, workforce readiness, and gender equity in vulnerable communities around the world. Since 2010, Worldreader and its partners have distributed over 46 million digital books to 15 million children and young adults across five regions (East Africa, West Africa, Latin America, MENA, and South Asia). Worldreader is always looking for partners to reach millions more. With COVID-19 forcing millions of children out of school, Worldreader is providing distance learning solutions to families around the world.
