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.
Our goal is to facilitate the natural spread of literacy initiatives all over Nigeria and instill in young people a love of learning that will serve them well throughout their lives.
