Room to Read's scaling early reading intervention

Room to Read, in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development India, has implemented the "Scaling Early Reading Intervention" project since September 2015 in the four Indian states of Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. The objective of the project is to demonstrate (1) an effective model towards improving reading outcomes among primary grade children, and (2) an innovative approach for scaling NGO-led interventions through the government system.

This project is being scaled based on a scaffolded approach of ‘I do – We do – You do’, which involves:

  • Demonstration of the program model in selected government schools by Room to Read.
  • Close collaboration with the government to scale up the program model across an entire district.
  • Handing over the program model to the government for replication.
