Outside of high-income countries, 7 in 10 children are experiencing learning poverty

WORLD BANK, 2021

An increasing number of children around the world do not have access to the educational resources they need to learn basic literacy and numeracy. 

We know that education is a child’s best opportunity to break the cycle of poverty, but ongoing school closures, lockdowns and outbreaks are stripping this basic human right from the next generation. 



Elevate: our game changer

Elevate is the next chapter in Library For All’s mission to make knowledge accessible to all. Gamified learning engages children from one activity to the next, growing their skills step by step. Learning starts from the beginning with basic phonics, script and arithmetic.

Wherever we deploy Elevate, we work to both translate and adapt all the learning content so it is culturally relevant to the children learning with it.

So far we’ve developed localised versions of Elevate for children in the Pacific, Vietnam and East Africa in Swahili.

We’re on a mission to make knowledge accessible to all, equally.

Library For All’s fun learning tools equip children to make up for lost time and build the foundation they need to progress their education.

Our integrated hardware and software solutions mean every child, anywhere, can learn – even in the face of lockdowns, no internet or emergency situations.

Say hello to Destiny and Sofia

The tablets have access to hundreds of books and create a personalised reading experience for each student.

Our books are developed with local authors and illustrators to create original books that reflect the culture, language, and lived experiences of readers.

Our library is segmented based on reading levels so that children have a graduated reading journey from simple stories to chapter books.

Children across 11 countries are now learning with Library For All.

Over 560,000 children are learning with Library For All. 

In 2021 Library For All expanded our reach through the Pacific, South-East Asia and Africa. We’ve been tackling learning loss caused by the global pandemic, and now reach an additional 142,000 children. 

We’ve taken learning to some of the most challenging communities across the globe, where they’re not just battling the impacts of COVID-19 but war, natural disasters and other education-limiting emergencies.
