iREAD Ghana Study

The goal of this partnership is to measure the impact of providing unlimited books to children, and the potential impact of the e-reader technology on the reading levels and habits of primary and secondary school children in Ghana through a pilot study. USAID will provide financial support to enable ILC Africa to carry out monitoring and evaluation studies on students in the six Ghanaian public schools selected to be a part of the iREAD Ghana study.
