Ethiopia Reads is a grassroots non-profit/non-government organization geared toward bringing literacy and literacy related resources to Ethiopia. Their mission is to develop a reading culture in Ethiopia by connecting children with books. Ethiopia Reads was founded to improve literacy and create a culture of reading in Ethiopia, in order to bring hope, vision and educational skills to this generation of Ethiopian children. They do this by: providing quality reading materials, as far as possible in local languages, in accessible locations with encouraging and supportive adult supervision, publishing attractive books in local languages, promoting literacy and the importance of reading, creating libraries and reading centers where they didn’t previously exist.

58% of Ethiopians age 15 and above cannot read. Classes in government schools around typically have approximately 180 students at a time. At present, 99% of schools in Ethiopia have no libraries!
