Summary

Children in India suffer from a severe lack of books. It's crucial for them to develop reading skills so they can succeed in school and beyond. Without the right books, they risk being permanently held back. Aria is an aspiring author who has a deep love for reading. She is partnering with Worldreader to raise funds to bring a digital library to kids in India through the Worldreader BookSmart collection. You can help change the lives of these children today!

Challenge

With the current COVID-19 crisis, the children who normally have education through day-care and education centers are stuck at home. Unfortunately, many of India's families aren't equipped with the tools and training needed to properly teach the children. Without these resources, many Indian children will risk falling permanently behind.

Solution

By supporting BookSmart, the base collection of digital reading books can continue to be published and operated on any data-enabled device or tablet. By providing BookSmart as an option for children at home, they will be given access to a wide variety of books in English and Hindi appropriate to their reading level, allowing them to build skills and achieve greater success in their education.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in early childhood development can yield significant returns in improved health, literacy, and economic opportunities for children well into their adulthood. Children who actively engage in reading materials at a young age stand the most to gain in terms of lifelong benefits. We anticipate improved early learning experiences, increased engagement of parents reading at home, and entire families and communities being uplifted as a result.
