Happy International Mother Language Day 2022!

Posted by Julia M on February 23, 2022

Every year, StoryWeaver marks #InternationalMotherLanguageDay to highlight the importance of giving every child access to joyful mother tongue reading material. Learning to read in one’s mother tongue helps make education more engaging, meaningful, and enjoyable for children. 💡

UNESCO reports that 40% of the global population don't have access to education in a language they speak or understand. The disruption of education systems due to #COVID19 has deepened inequities. The need for high-quality multilingual children’s books is more urgent than ever.

In keeping with UNESCO's theme for #IMLD2022: “Using technology for multilingual learning: Challenges and opportunities”, we're sharing an interview where Purvi Shah, Sr Director — StoryWeaver, talks to Michael Swanton about the tremendous work StoryWeaver is doing with partners like Endless Oaxaca Multilingüe. 📚🚀
