The YCRY project focuses on the creation of community-developed reading materials accessible via community-managed libraries. With the support of Beyond Access and Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), OMAES trained librarians and provided resources for parents and students in 15 school communities. Through the implementation of EDC’s low-cost mobile reading tool, Stepping Stone, YCRY offers relevant, interesting, local language digital reading resources with instructional audio (e.g. illustrated children’s books and reading skill builder activities). Families have access to numerous reading resources to help their children succeed as well as a trained librarian to facilitate their engagement. The project will ultimately increase parent-child interactions while building children’s readiness to read.
