Connecting Play and Literacy

Bangladesh has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world, with one out of three unable to read. Libraries Unlimited is a joint initiative by British Council Bangladesh and the Government of Bangladesh that seeks to improve the quality of public libraries and their service to the communities.

Nexon Foundation donated bricks to British Council Bangladesh to be distributed to 67 public libraries across Bangladesh. 124 Librarians came together to develop creative programs that would foster children’s literacy through brick play.

The program has enabled children to experience the joy of reading and the excitement of discovering knowledge and works of the imagination.
