All Children Reading Asia Regional Workshop
The All Children Reading Asia Regional Workshop was held on 17-20 September 2012 in Bangkok. The event was jointly organized by the Global Partnership for Education, AusAID, DfID, USAID and UNESCO Bangkok. The Asia regional workshop aimed to initiate concrete planning and rapid action to improve early-grade reading skills. It reflected GPE’s commitment to cut in half the number of non-readers in 20 countries within a period of 5 years. More than 150 participants attended, representing Ministries of Education, civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations and donor partners from the region. All participating countries developed national action plans.
