Read To Grow, Read To Know

How RGRK works
How RGRK works

Read to Grow Read to Know E-Libraries for Rural Schools was designed and implemented by DIL to accelerate reading development and comprehension in English, a skill all children must master in order to succeed academically in Pakistan. 

In the face of school closures due to COVID-19, in the fall of 2020 we were still able to move forward with expanding our tablet reading program Read to Grow Read to Know (RGRK) at 8 partner government schools reaching an additional 3,006 children. A class set of tablets for each school, 170 devices in all, were equipped with DIL’s e-library featuring levelled stories from content partner Starfall. Librarians for these schools were hired and trained. Given social distancing in effect leading up to the reopening of schools, interactive training on implementing the RGRK program took place via What’s App and received rave reviews by participants.

School librarians from existing RGRK sites also received refresher training sessions The purpose of these sessions was to allow the librarians to interact and learn best practices from one another. As of the end of 2020, 52 schools are offering RGRK tablet reading aimed at expanding access to quality children’s books that supports reading development. The initiative operates within DIL’s Libraries and Reading Program which aims to develop lifelong reading habits linked to greater success at school and in life.


DIL school Library beneficiaries tell us:

Books are the best weapon to fight any situation that we face in our life. In this pandemic we all are very upset about being locked at home. Finally, DIL provided a way out and resumed book circulation. Now we have opened our library for students and community. And we are circulating library books. Our students are very happy to be able to read while they are at home.

I feel happy as my daughter is reading stories and learning so many things in this lockdown (

- Asghar, parent from NOWA Kot Dinal Shah


Thank you DIL for letting us read books at home. We are very happy and enjoying reading the stories to our siblings.
