Digital4Literacy Project, Google Impact Challenge Winner
Uploaded on May 27, 2017
Children from low-income families in the Bay Area hear 30-million fewer words than their peers by age four, and there is only one book for every 300 children in their community. Families that read together every day radically change this outcome. The Digital4Literacy project will give kids access to digital books, in multiple languages, while creating a supportive online community for parents and caregivers. Over three years, Bring Me a Book will expand to create a literacy ecosystem in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties for 432 preschoolers and their families, providing them with up to 40,000 eBooks and learning apps.
