Global Reading Network
Improving Programs through Evidence Building and Knowledge Sharing
The Global Reading Network brings together donors, practitioners, government officials, national and international civil society organizations, and other stakeholders committed to improving reading outcomes for primary grade children around the world. With support from USAID and other key donor and development partners, the Network collects, develops, and disseminates evidence-based practices to increase the impact, scale, and sustainability of primary grade reading programs.
250 million children around the world are not learning foundational reading skills, 130 million of whom have spent at least four years in school. The Global Reading Network seeks to remedy this critical problem by connecting stakeholders, individuals, and organizations committed to ensuring that all children are able to read.
