Ghana District Scale (GDS)

In order to get the next million students reading, we need a scalable solution that can be adopted by entire school systems and communities.

The project

Ghana District Scale (GDS) is Worldreader’s first-ever district-run digital reading program that will facilitate the scaling of digital reading to all 90 public primary schools within the Kwaebibirem Municipality in Ghana.

The aim of this project is to build a model that demonstrates how digital reading in schools can be scaled nationwide by creating systems-level change starting at the district level.
