We Love Reading Highlighted in Stanford Social Innovation Review

We Love Reading is honored to be featured in the Stanford Social Innovation Review’s Fall 2017 issue. The article is titled 1,001 Story Times, written by Corey Binns, and highlights We Love Reading’s mission to bring the love of reading to children across the world.

            The article was published in SSIR’s Field Report section, which profiles innovative work around the world. It calls the initiative “beautifully simple and replicable,” and cites IDEO.org’s Rob Gradoville, saying, “The magic is in the details that Dajani and her team provide to each volunteer, training them so they can host reading circles in a way that has been scientifically proven to engender empathy and improve learning outcomes in children.” The article calls attention to WLR’s programs with refugees and its success in inspiring dedication from its volunteers, as well as its efforts at expansion and scaling.

            Stanford Social Innovation Review is a quarterly magazine published by the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at Stanford University. It covers a wide range of topics, including nonprofit management, philanthropy, corporate citizenship, and social change. Its mission is “to advance, educate, and inspire the field of social innovation by seeking out, cultivating, and disseminating the best in research- and practice-based knowledge.”
