Worldreader Launches the Keep Children Reading Program in the United States
San Francisco-based educational nonprofit Worldreader is bringing its Keep Children Reading program to the United States for the first time. Drawing on 10 years of experience working around the world, the organization will provide digital books, learning activities, and reader engagement to thousands of children in the U.S. during Covid-19 school disruptions and beyond.
“Worldreader’s Keep Children Reading program is an easy way to keep kids reading and learning during this crisis,“ said David Risher, Worldreader’s co-founder and CEO. “We’re bringing together all we’ve learned over a decade – great digital books from around the world, activities that support reading and social-emotional learning, and an easy-to-use app that works on the phones families already have – to support kids and their families. There’s never been a more important time to help vulnerable children in our own backyard.”
