About Us

Nigeria Reads Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to mobilizing the latent educational opportunities in Nigeria’s outlying communities through the establishment of literacy centers and programming. Our journey began with the establishment of a Tasha Community Library through our Friends of the Library project, in which we rallied the support of Community-Based Organizations, Private-Public partnerships, and other stakeholders to establish a literacy project and programming.

To date, we have reached over 1,800 young people in 27 communities across 7 states in Nigeria through literacy.

it is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education.
