Save the Children

As a global movement working to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, Save the Children’s literacy programs have grown in influence beyond their initial implementation sites. Around the world, Save the Children education teams are leveraging the experience they have gained through program implementation to engage public, private and civil society actors in the common cause to strengthen reading programs and the culture of reading in their countries. These are known as “ripples.”

In June 2015, Save the Children conducted a survey of its reading programs to better understand and document these areas of influence. This brief document is just a sample of the ripples that Save the Children’s literacy programs are making. In total, Save the Children surveyed 21 country programs and identified more than 43 different ripples.
