Rimal joins WorldReader

This year Rimal Books proudly joined the Read 2 Kids initiative. Based on the success of their Read to Kids India program, Read to Kids will begin piloting in Jordan in mid 2017 with a full rollout in early 2018. Focusing on the parents and caregivers of Syrian and vulnerable Jordanian children aged 0-12, Read to Kids Jordan will provide an innovative mobile reading application which will be available for free on any internet-enabled mobile device.

Read to Kids Jordan is a two-year project, partially funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and lead by Worldreader in partnership with local on the ground partners, which seeks to promote pre-literacy skills by encouraging parents to read to and with their young children via the free Read to Kids mobile app. The app will contain 250 high-quality Arabic children´s stories along with a sub-collection of psychosocial content designed to promote psychosocial well-being and healing.

We are proud to contribute our publications to the Read 2 Kids initiative and we encourage other individuals, publishers and organizations to support the program.
