Books for Every Child - the Global Book Fund

On May 10, 2016 Global Partnership for Education hosted the Global Book Fund (GBF) webinar.

Presenter, Dr. Penelope Bender (USAID), provided an overview of the Global Book Fund, and shared an update on progress in developing the fund's activities. During the webinar, Dr. Bender engaged participants in thinking about innovative ways to improve and increase content, transform approaches to financing and procurement, and modernize supply chain management to ensure Books for Every Child.

The remainder of the time was full of presentations from  Feasibility Study which looks at the feasibility of a Global Book Fund, and the three technology-based interventions that have been supported by All Children Reading  Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD) initiative that are included in the Global Book fund suite of activities.
