Encouraging Children to Read with Let’s Read app

In this digital age, we cannot help the fact everyone who has a smartphone will spend hours glued to their phones. But as a parent, oftentimes, you can’t help but wonder if your child will do something productive aside from playing and watching videos on the phone. How can you convince them to put down their phones and start other hobbies like reading?

To celebrate World Book Day, JAAGO Foundation, and The Asia Foundation, launched a nationwide #LetsReadTogether reading campaign where youth volunteers from all 64 districts encouraged reading habits among children to promote positive and fun reading experiences through the Let’s Read digital library. Volunteers went door to door and helped parents to download the app on their phone. This app will develop the child’s imagination as well as increase their creativity.

The Foundation has consistently supported JAAGO Foundation through thick and thin. DAS has had a 3-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it has had time to recharge and reinvent itself.
