On reading

One of the major goals of READ Alliance is to build a multi stakeholder alliance of entities working towards improved early reading in the country. Towards that end, we have created a repository of reading interventions that are developing and implementing solutions to address different challenges of reading through tailored programs that offer training and support for teachers, guardians, schools and communities. 

You can search for interventions by region or by the specific challenge that it addresses. If you come across any unique reading intervention; do get in touch at [email protected] or [email protected].
