A new partnership to extend the joy of reading throughout the world
Library For All is always excited to celebrate impact milestones with you, our loyal supporters. On this occasion, we are pleased to announce a milestone with a difference, as we proudly share the news of our merger with outstanding global child advocacy organisation Save the Children.
Come with us on the next stage of our journey
Since the day we began this journey together in 2011, Library For All has helped more than 250,000 children learn to read in Haiti, The DRC, Cambodia, Mongolia, Rwanda and most recently Papua New Guinea, Laos and Timor-Leste.
We are extremely proud of our impact so far, but, as you know, we have a vision to help 20 million children learn to read by 2030. With your support we are committed to making that happen.
In mid-2019, discussions with Save the Children highlighted the shared values of our two organisations, and the extraordinary potential to grow our impact by working together. Following a period of due diligence by both organisations, we are pleased to announce that Library For All merged with Save the Children in March 2020.
The merger provides Library For All with direct access to Save the Children’s global footprint in more than 100 countries, making us part of a global movement of education, language and literacy specialists working to improve the lives of children.
It also connects us with a network of new opportunities to work together on programs, and to foster new partnerships around the world. Importantly, it provides us with the opportunity to deepen our investment in our Library and our education technology including the Spark Digital Library Kit and Library For All Digital Library Application.
For Save the Children, merging with Library For All reflects their strong belief that new technologies present huge opportunities to address social problems in new ways. Bringing Library For All’s innovative technology-led approach with proven results to the centre of their program design enables breakthroughs in education technology to support the delivery of more efficient and effective services.
Library For All and Save The Children will work together for global impact
This merger represents an incredible opportunity for Library For All to create more meaningful impact, but it wouldn’t have been possible without your support. For everything that you do for us, thank you!
Going forward, our Vision, Mission and Values will be the same as they always have been. We’re still proud to be known as Library For All, and our commitment to delivering innovative and scaleable technology-led solutions for educational challenges remains unchanged.
Partnership is still a key driver for our organisation, and we will continue to partner with many of the world’s leading development organisations including our existing partners World Vision, ChildFund and Care International to create impact. Importantly, we’ll continue to share this journey with you every step of the way.
You may also notice some exciting changes. Our team will grow, our footprint will expand, and we’ll begin developing new content for new countries and new languages. We’ll refine our technology products, create new and engaging ways for children to read with us, and provide new and innovative education tools for low-literacy countries.
We invite you to ‘watch this space’! Stay connected with our team, support us as we change the lives of children for the better, and continue to share in our journey to #lettheworldread!
