Description

Worldreader is a not-for-profit organization, headquartered in San Francisco and with offices in Europe and Africa, with one goal: to eradicate illiteracy.

Worldreader employs the mobile phone GSM network to instantaneously deliver thousands of local and international e-books onto lightweight, durable, low-power e-readers and simple feature phones for children and families in sub-Saharan Africa…for less cost, less paper, and less fuel, with fewer logistical barriers.

In three years, Worldreader has reached 13,000 children with over 700,000 e-books in 9 African countries via e-readers . These children now read more, read better, and they're creating a culture of reading in their communities. We train teachers and students; work with e-reader manufacturers to provide devices; and collaborate with local and international publishers to obtain digitized content that isreading-level appropriate and culturally relevant.

Through Worldreader Mobile more than 228,000 people are reading a wide variety of books including educational material, health tips, love stories, prize winning short stories, children's books, classics, and more– all on a device they already own: their mobile phone.

Since we started our efforts to eradicate illiteracy, Worldreader has been committed to gauging our impact through extensive monitoring and evaluation activities, which measure the number of books read before and after deployment, students' reading ability, as well as own ability to provide delivery and support. We've been research focused since day one and have a long term track record of examining what works and what doesn't when it comes to eradicating illiteracy.

Our own monitoring and evaluation consistently shows that children in our e-readers program read more and read better since having access to books. Our kids in sub-Saharan Africa, on average read 9 books per school term and significantly improve their native language and english fluency skills. We also know that one year in a Worldreader program for a child is equivalent to two years of regular schooling. Longer-term, we hope to see increased community involvement in reading, and ultimately, increased literacy rates beyond UN-predicted levels. We continue to conduct research within our programs, the results of which are published on our learnings page.
