Global literacy statistics paint a depressing picture with illiteracy threatening over 785 million people worldwide. That means one in every five people on the planet has just basic reading skills or none at all and two-thirds of them are women.
Library For All is a nonprofit organization that’s taking a step towards lowering the numbers of the world’s illiterate. They have built a digital library platform to tackle the lack of access to quality educational materials in developing countries. They hope to bring knowledge within reach of everyone on the planet allowing individuals the opportunity to learn, work towards their goals and lift themselves and subsequently their families out of poverty. The Library For All platform is cloud based and is built to work with low cost tablets and computers available in the developing world.
Their library in each country includes content licensed or donated from:
- Major international publishers
- Local publishers from a variety of countries
- NGOs, governments and other local stakeholders
- Open Educational Resources
Library For All is able to track how users use the library, what they read, how many pages they read, etc. and are able to use this data to improve the system. In every country they use locally relevant books and educational books.
