Nikkei News Cites Let’s Read in Op-Ed on Indonesia’s Fight Against Illiteracy
February 7, 2020 — The Nikkei Asian Review highlights The Asia Foundation’s Let’s Read initiative in an op-ed assessing how Indonesia is improving literacy across the country through local technology-driven solutions.
Impactful reading programs, such as the Asia Foundation’s Let’s Read initiative, which brings together communities and technology to build early reading habits with high-quality local language children’s books, are the only viable strategy to meet the needs of regional language diversity and geographic complexity.
Developing strategies to fill shelves with books and introduce people to the power of reading not only starts to fulfill President Joko Widodo’s commitment to the nation’s children, but also empowers local communities across the 17,000 islands to thrive sustainably.
