MoyaApp Partner Reading App Receives Global Literacy Award!

Sep 8, 2023 | News

Today is International Literacy Day and we’re honoured to share that Worldreader, a longtime partner of MoyaApp, has received the US Library of Congress Literacy Award for their work helping families and children around the world enjoy the power of reading.

Worldreader has been pioneering mobile reading across Africa and the world since 2010.  We’ve been working with Worldreader for many years, hosting and powering their incredible BookSmart reading app for children and families as a datafree app on MoyaApp.  Every day, thousands of MoyaApp users read on BookSmart to enjoy a wide range of inspiring books in English that support children’s reading and education.

Did you know that when a child reads regularly, they do better in school and improve their emotional intelligence?  Yet today, South Africa is in the midst of a learning crisis with over 80% of ten-year-old children struggling to read.  We’re committed and excited to help turn this crisis around – together with Worldreader, we’re helping our users discover and benefit from the transformative power that reading has on children’s education. 

So celebrate International Literacy Day with us and start reading with your children on MoyaApp with the #datafree BookSmart app!
