We support readers across
the Global South

Worldreader supports reading programs in East Africa,
West Africa, India, Latin America, and
the Middle East and North Africa. 

East Africa

Worldreader works in dozens of schools and libraries across East Africa, and millions of readers access our library via their mobile phones in this region. Our LEAP project brought digital reading to all 61 public libraries in Kenya. Our Anasoma pilot project was the first of our dedicated efforts to leverage digital reading
to empower women and girls.

We are actively seeking to expand our work in this region through
partnerships with local governments and NGOs.

Latin America

Our work in Latin America focuses on children and youth. In Mexico, our Avanzalee project targets Mexican youth with the aim of fostering a love of reading by bringing them a carefully curated library of engaging books. In Peru, our recently launched Crecelee project targets children in grades two to four with the aim of instilling reading habits from a young age.

We are actively seeking to expand our work in this region through partnerships with local governments and NGOs.

Middle East and North Africa

In MENA, we aim to support the educational and emotional growth of children impacted by the Syrian refugee crisis. Our Tuta Tuta project in Jordan supports vulnerable Jordanian and refugee families through digital reading. With access to Worldreader’s library of Arabic and English books available on mobile phones, parents and caregivers can support children’s learning and strengthen bonds.

partnerships with local governments and NGOs.

South Asia

In India, our work focuses on early childhood education. In close collaboration with Pearson, the Central Institute of Educational Technologies, and local NGOs, we pioneered the Read to Kids program which encouraged parents to read to their children by leveraging mobile phones. We are now expanding into primary schools and public daycare centres.

Across India there are Aanganwadis and public primary schools that lack basic reading resources and could greatly benefit from a digital library. Your support will help us reach these places. Contact our development team today to find out how you can help.

West Africa

Since Worldreader was founded in 2010, West Africa has been one of the most important regions for experimenting, innovating, and expanding Worldreader projects. Each of our projects in this region is unique in its objectives – from using digital reading solutions to transform primary school systems, to accelerating progress towards a more gender-equal world.
