Happy International Women’s Day!...Giulia Pelosi, Worldreader's Gender Specialist
This International Women’s Day we want to pause and celebrate how you’re supporting women and girls when you support Worldreader.
You've helped us reach over 2.5 million women and girls with life-changing books since 2010. That includes the 4,500 girls at 25 schools across Tanzania that read from Worldreader e-readers through our partnership with Camfed. It includes the girls at the Kibera School for Girls who are setting the bar for Kenyan primary education with the help of a library of 12,500 e-books provided by Worldreader. It includes thousands of mothers and aunties who are empowered to read to the children in their lives through our Read to Kids program in India.
Women are some of our most avid readers and we’re convinced that literacy and access to reading are key tools for promoting gender equality. That’s why we launched our Anasoma project to increase women's and girls’ participation in mobile reading and ultimately shift gender norms. Read more about this exciting work here.
Given the tools to succeed, women can change the world. At Worldreader, we’re empowering our female readers to do just that.
Happy International Women’s Day!
