EBSCO Donates Articles to Readers in Developing Countries

EBSCO Information Services teamed up with the nonprofit Worldreader to bring nonfiction content to children and families in sub-Saharan Africa and India. EBSCO will donate proprietary reference articles that will bring Worldreader closer to its goal of reaching 10 million readers by the end of 2015. Readers can access these articles—which cover topics such as science, literature, history, philosophy, and math for those who are new to the English language—via Worldreader Mobile on their own cellphones.

“Reading is transformative; especially in the developing world where access to books is often limited or non-existent,” says Danielle Zacarias, Worldreader’s director of content. “This partnership with EBSCO enables Worldreader to provide a variety of non-fiction reference articles filled with real-world knowledge … that will educate, inspire, and empower growth and hope in the parts of the world that need it most.”

For more information, read the press release.
