Read, Engage, Achieve and Dream (READ) Alliance
The USAID-supported READ Alliance is a platform to provide grant funding, technical support, and advocacy to test and scale promising reading innovations. The READ Alliance brings together diverse players –– including corporations, foundations, non-profit organizations, think tanks, innovators, researchers and donors –– dedicated to ensuring that all children in India learn to read. Through the Early Grade Reading Innovation Challenge, the READ Alliance has supported and incubated six reading solutions across five states in India with the aim to reach more than 130,000 students. Examples of these methods are intensive teacher training and promoting reading skills through Same Language Subtitling of audio visual content.
