Books for Asia
We put brand-new books and digital content into the hands of students, educators, and leaders in 20 countries. Through technology initiatives and book donations, we help infuse students with a love of reading essential for literacy; build knowledge in the business, legal, and science professions; sharpen vocational and research ability; and enhance language skills to compete in the global economy.
Books for Asia’s digital initiative brings educational content to children anytime, anywhere in languages they use at home and school. By empowering underserved communities to create their own high-quality mother tongue libraries, the breakthrough approach of Let’s Read! dramatically improves access to books by children and families impacted by poverty, conflict, or gender discrimination.
