Working with local grassroots charities and NGOs in 13 countries across the globe, the Global Vision International (GVI) Charitable Trust manages and raises funds for numerous long-term programs. These funds are used to support our local partners with the aims of alleviating poverty, illiteracy, environmental degradation and climate change. We do this through education, nutrition, conservation and capacity building. Our work focuses upon 3 key objectives: awareness, impact and empowerment. The aim is to create awareness of global issues, have a direct impact on those issues locally and empower our alumni, be they volunteers, donors, staff or community members, to continue impacting local issues on a global level.
Worldreader is on a mission to bring digital books to every child and her family, so that they can improve their lives. The increasing ubiquity and diminishing costs of digital technology enable us to solve these problems in a simple and straight-forward way. Using e-readers, mobile phones and other digital technology, we reach readers in 37 countries, providing them with over 6,000 book titles in 23 languages. We work with 140 publishers to acquire and digitize the best, most relevant content for our readers; 70% of our library comes from African and Indian publishers. Since 2010, we have made it possible for over 200,000 people to read 1.7 million books and our data shows this work has had significant impact. Students in our e-reader programs make more progress in oral reading fluency than those in neighboring schools, and girls in Worldreader’s school-based programs outpace their peers by a factor of three to five, closing a gender achievement gap. Through these efforts and our partnerships with the private sector, teachers, education experts, and other organizations, we continue to work towards a world in which every child and her family have the books they need to improve their lives, the practice of reading is commonplace, and where illiteracy is a thing of the past.
