Number of Children Reached
Reading aloud with children helps them begin to love reading. Children will learn skills that help them succeed in school, develop to their fullest potential, and engage with their communities in ways that help us all.
The Asia Foundation works with talented local authors, illustrators, and book creating organizations. Together we have created more than 100 new books for children in Indonesia.
To celebrate, we are challenging adults in Indonesia to read 200,000 books with children before National Children's Day on July 23rd.
