Organized by READ CO, the USAID funded and Save the Children implemented project, the book event aimed to promote reading in schools and introduce supplementary reading titles made available by the project in 870 primary schools.
READ CO supports the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Regional Education Bureaus (REBs) to design and roll out a comprehensive and replicable community outreach model in support of improved reading achievement for primary grade students (grades 1 to 8).
